About

Product Description:

This KAMPTAL Riesling comes mostly from vineyards less than 15 years old on the Gaisberg und Heiligenstein slopes.

Young vines tend to yield more grapes and are not so deeply rooted that they can represent the clear character of the soil. Therefore, the varietal character stands out more here; less so the character of the vineyard.

Beguiling bouquet à la vineyard peach and Gravenstein. Streamlined and playful. Quite powerful on the palate with generous extract and balance, and completed by crisp acidity. Very good length. This deserves a special accolade as an optimal light-style Riesling.

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 member of the association 'Österreichische Traditionsweingüter', which is working on a vineyard classification project for the Danube area." - Winery
