BLANC DE BLANCS
Our BLANC DE BLANCS is favoured by the sparkling Connoisseurs.
The Schloss Gobelsburg BLANC DE BLANCS style is on one side marked by the vineyards of the Danube region and their grape varieties (Grüner Veltliner, Welschriesling, Chardonnay). On the other side is the character marked by the vinification in barrels made of Austrian oak trees. Grapes are harvested at the right moment, transported in small boxes and are immediately pressed, whereby only the core of the basic wine is used. After six months of cask storage, it is bottled for the second fermentation. It matures for between 2,5 and 3 years on the yeast, which contributes to the creamy texture, until it is hand riddled and then disgorged.

From its struck-match, toasted hazelnut nose to its steely, mouthwatering palate, it is quite superb. A real standout.
