2019 Schloss Gobelsburg Ried Steinsetz Gruner Veltliner Kamptal DAC, Austria

$32.99 USD

STEINSETZ - Ried (single vineyard, cru) Steinsetz is situated south of the
castle just outside of the village Gobelsburg and is marked by
sedimentation material of Danube and Traisen. Depending on the size of
the flow smaller or larger pebbles –mostly quartzite –were deposited. The
sediments are covered by loess of 10 to 50 cm.

Description: It opens clear, bright and fresh on the nose, where ripe apple
aromas intermix with delicate smoky aromas. Medium-bodied,piquant and
fresh, this is a pretty intense, elegant and well-structured Grüner Veltliner
with nicely bitter flavors on the finish. The wine reveals ripe and juicy fruit
that reminds me of yellow-fleshed tropical fruits and melons. The finish is
fresh,crisp and really stimulating on the palate.
