Riesling, Trocken 2016

Schloss Gobelsburg

This KAMPTAL Riesling comes mostly from vineyards less than 15 years old on the Gaisberg und Heiligenstein slopes. Young vines tend to yield more grapes and are not so deeply rooted that they can represent the clear character of the soil. Therefore, the varietal character stands out more here; less so the character of the vineyard. Beguiling bouquet à la vineyard peach and Gravenstein. Streamlined and playful. Quite powerful on the palate with generous extract and balance, and completed by crisp acidity. Very good length. This deserves a special accolade as an optimal light-style Riesling.

Reviews

  • "93 points. Peach and grapefruit flavors hold court in this focused white, picking up accents of floral, apple and mineral. Intense and long, with a vibrant aftertaste echoing the complex flavors. Silky texture. Drink now through 2025. 650 cases imported." (Wine Spectator)
