Schloss Gobelsburg, Kamptal
Kamptal er efter Wachau Østrigs bedste vinregion med en århundredelang tradition for vindyrkning. Hovedsorterne er Grüner Veltliner og Riesling, men der dyrkes også en lang række andre sorter - bl.a. de røde Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Blaufränkisch, Pinot Noir og Merlot.
Kvaliteten er tårnhøj i regionen og øges yderligere gennem det arbejde, der laves i ÖTW - en søsterorganisation til det...
The nose opens precise, lean and fresh, with bright and spicy fruit and flinty notes. On the palate, this treasure is crystalline, tight, reductive and very elegant, with a long and tensioned finish. This Jubilee edition reveals remarkable finesse and grip and represents the historical spirit and substance of the castle. Due to the matured wines from the 1970s and 1980s, this is a leaner, more filigreed style than the newer assemblages that contain only barrel-stored reserve wines from the Michael Moosbrugger era. The wine is doubtlessly very impressive. To create the blend, many bottles of the wine library were opened, tasted and decanted into small vessels that were then, little by little, blended into a cuvée. "It demands a clarity of vision and long years of experience with the wines of the Danube River region to compose a cuvée of this style," says Moosbrugger. "The different soils and the various grape varieties demand an understanding of their nature and their functionality in a blend, in order to create a wine like this." - Stephan Reinhardt
Incredibly deep and complex, this has all the mystery of great white wines that have matured for decades in the bottle, but is still lively. Delicate candied-citrus, baked-apple and honeycomb aromas, but the more you smell this the more you find in it! Sensational concentration and finesse through the long, filigree finish. This limited-production blend includes wines from 31 vintages over five decades, going back to 1970. There are also 9 grape varieties in there, gruner veltliner and riesling forming the base.
