Schloss Gobelsburg Grüner Veltliner Langenlois Tradition 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

A lot has happened in Michael Moosbrugger’s ten years at Gobelsburg. The Cistercian monks have owned vineyards here since 1171, but the wines, which had enjoyed a great reputation throughout the centuries, had dipped in quality in the late 80s and early 90s. In 1996 the monastery of nearby Zwettl, which owns the property, decided to ask for help from a professional, and Michael, a young but inexperienced winemaker at the time, was chosen. After the very tricky 1996 vintage, Michael has not looked back. The 1997 vintage was excellent, and the reputation and sales have grown consistently each year since then. Michael is an incredibly good winemaker whether he is making Grüner Veltliner or Riesling, or his very elegantly cool Pinot Noir, his deliciously textured sparkling wine or even his range of sweet wines: TBAs and Eisweins. Last year, in his 10th vintage, he was rewarded with the Winzer des Jahres (Winemaker of the year) from the influential Falstaff magazine.

Schloss Gobelsburg has created this Grüner Veltliner as homage to the wines of 50 years ago; they feel that this style is quickly disappearing from the modern wine world. Intriguing notes of pipe smoke, white pepper, and fresh coconut milk mingle with a forest-floor earthiness.
