Why this wine made the cut…
A beautiful expression of Riesling in Austria's terroir.

100% REES-ling
Riesling is one of the greatest, long-lived white wines in the world, highly expressive of the nuances of its respective terroir. The wines are generally relatively low to moderate in alcohol with crisp acidity and full of flavor and extract. Stylistically, it can vary from bone dry to quite sweet, and with age can develop intense aromatics. Because Riesling is so expressive of the terroir from where it is grown, it can show a potential mix of floral, fruity, intensely mineral, smoky and/or spicy aromas and flavors depending on the soil, climate, and exposure.

Schloss Gobelsburg

Kamptal, Austria

Schloss Gobelsburg is one of the oldest estates in Austria and, under the leadership of Moosbrugger and Bründlmayer since 1996, it has hit new heights.

The estate has several different historical and sustainably farmed microclimates of riesling and grüner veltliner that impart individual character to the wines. Seeking to retain that individuality, mechanization is limited in the winery as well—rather than pump wines and disturb their equilibrium, they physically put the "barrels on wheels."

The Schloss Gobelsburg wines vary greatly in style depending on the vineyard site, but respect for the grapes and the process translate to quality across the board.
