Gobelsburg riesling

Riesling, "Tradition" 2012

Schloss Gobelsburg

Still extremely youthful and slightly yeasty tones, but full of vibrancy, a true abundance of bright fruit nuances, a duet of vineyard peaches and old pear varieties, chic, elegant lines, fruity-sweet and balanced, full-bodied and multilayered, constantly sparkles with new facets, will grow even more subtle and join the ranks of the best traditional Rieslings.

Reviews

  • "95 points. Believe me or not, but the 2012 Riesling Tradition is the finest and most subtle Austrian Riesling I have tasted this summer. The nose is very Burgundian in its purity, elegance and subtle expression of fruit and mineral-rich terroir. It shows the purity, multi-facetedness, noblesse and serenity of a great wine which does not care about primary fruit aromas, but reveals enormously subtle flavors of flowers, herbs, crystalline stones and fruits like honeydew, nuts and turkish honey. The palate is highly elegant and perfectly balanced, the taste noble, complex and long without exposing anything else but finesse, elegance and harmony." (Wine Advocate)
