Our VINTAGE is our companion in the special moments of our life.
The VINTAGE style at Schloss Gobelsburg is a homage to the art of craftsmanship in respect to the past centuries. A minimum of ten years of bottle storage is required to achieve finesse and elegance in a VINTAGE. Only special vintages are used for a VINTAGE (2001, 2004, 2008) 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 12 months of cask storage, it is bottled for the second fermentation. It matures for at least ten years on the yeast, which contributes to the rich texture, until it is hand riddled and then disgorged.
AWARDS & TASTING NOTES
Wine Enthusiast 10/19: rating 93
Creamy, lemony chalkiness on the nose promises a serious wine, with some age. The slender palate comes in with tiny bubbles of creamy foam, dancing against a yeasty, chalky, stony backdrop. They release notions of lemon and honey, contradictory notions that create drama, richness and freshness. The finish is creamy, intense with chalkiness, long and dry. -Anne Krebiehl MW
