Schloss Gobelsburg "Gobelsburger" Riesling 2018 750ml
Schloss Gobelsburg is a historic winery, owned by a Cistercian monastery and possessing wonderful old vineyards in the Kamptal region. This is one of the three top quality Danube areas of Austria and altogether has just 2500 hectares of vines. Gobelsburg have around 40 of these. It's the oldest winery in the region, founded in 1171, and it was run by the monks themselves until 1995. In 1996 winemaking and management responsibilities were taken over by Michael Moosbrugger. He took a soft-revisionist approach, changing the winemaking process and restructuring the vineyards, but only where necessary. The leap in quality has been dramatic.
