Schloss Gobelsburg Gruner Veltliner Gobelsburger 2012
New life breathed into an old monastic estate, with Willi Bründlmayer as consultant. The wines are excellent VALUES while Michael "Michi" Moosbrugger consolidates his reputation. They won’t always be so. It’s beginning to look like Martin Nigl is Moosbrugger’s aesthetic soul-brother, though Michi’s wines are just a little more fluid in texture. But they’re both diligently precise in their detailing of flavor; they both speak flavor with careful diction. His special genius seems to lie in the making of very pretty fine-grained wines at the “low” end of his range—no small gift.
