Tasting Notes

On the nose, ripe apple aromas mix with delicate smokiness. Medium-bodied, piquant and fresh, this is a complex , elegant and delicious Grüner Veltliner with subtle and integrated ripe yellow-fleshed tropical fruits, orchard fruits and melons. There is attractive leesiness and minerality as well as a round mouthfeel and juicy acidity. Despite its very different grape composition, this Gruner is reminiscent of white Burgundy.

WINE INFORMATION

Schloss Gobelsburg, a Cistercian monastic estate, is one of the oldest wineries in the Austrian Danube area with a documented history that dates back to 1171. All the vineyards are located on slopes and terraces around the valley of the river Kamp near the town of Langenlois and the village of Gobelsburg. Schloss Gobelsburg specialises in Grüner Veltliner and Riesling and produces authentic and noble wines from different single vineyard, village and regional appellations. The winery is a member of the association 'Österreichische Traditionsweingüter', which is working on a vineyard classification project for the Danube area.

The word “Ried” is a designation of a single vineyard, recognized site. Steinsetz is situated south of the castle just outside of the village Gobelsburg and is marked by sedimentation material of loess and tertiary gravel from the Danube and its tributary, the Traisen. Vines are around 25 years of age in this vineyard. The grapes are harvested in October; the wine is aged in Austrian oak casks and bottled in spring.
