Reviews

  • "92 points. Ripe, juicy notes of yellow pear on the nose are shot through with lively, zesty lemon freshness. Smatterings of white pepper play around the sleek edges of this slender but super-juicy wine. This is totally enlivening and sings with fruit and freshness—with all the verve of its vintage." (Wine Enthusiast)
  • "89 points. Lentil and wax bean drenched in fresh lime and crab apple juices characterize this buoyant, polished, zingy bottling, which is more refined texturally as well as clearer and juicier in finish than the corresponding generic sold in European markets under the name “Domäne Gobelsburg” (and also reviewed in this report). Inner-mouth aromas of green herbs and nips of lime zest and white pepper complement the wine’s appealing succulence. (The impressive generic bottlings incorporating purchased fruit that are familiar from American markets under the “Gobelsburger” label have been rechristened “Schlosskellerei Gobelsburg” because, in keeping with recent legislation, the old designation is now reserved for wine grown in Gobelsburg the village.)"
