Schloss Gobelsburg Ried Renner 1 OTW Kamptal Grüner Veltliner 2019
Wine Enthusiast: Designated a Cellar Selection. "Fresh yeast still plays uppermost in the aromatic register of this spicy wine. The palate, enhanced by slight spritz, then speaks of white pepper, crushed sage, lemon freshness and a subtle but insistent yeast. This is gorgeous, slender, savory and utterly moreish. Drink by 2040." Mar 2021
James Suckling: "I love the precise balance of this rich and complex (also texturally) gruner veltliner, which glides over the palate, until you reach the tannins at the finish. Lovely white-fruit and delicate-spice aromas. Excellent aging potential. Drink or hold." Sep 2020
Winery: "Schloss Gobelsburg maintains a large number of parcels in Erste Lagen, or 1st Growth, vineyards in the Kamptal, including the mineral-rich, crystalline slopes of the Gaisberg and Heiligenstein planted to Riesling, and the deep loess soils of Renner, Grub, and Lamm planted to Grüner Veltliner. The winery continues to utilize organic winegrowing and has benefited from the fact that the monks of Zwettl Monastery began these practices as early as 1958.
Exuberant multivitamin juice-style fruit with a touch of grated nuts, describes a wide arc immediately followed by deep flavors; fruity-sweet and full-bodied but also very lively, mineral-saline notes before a long finish, another sure bet."
