Ried indicates this is a single vineyard wine, in this case Steinsetz, which is just outside the village of Gobelsburg.  This is a beautiful wine.  Light, pale golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose has limes with salinity and minerals.  On the palate, this has a great backbone of acidity.  Lots of lime fruit, some white pepper and just a hint of herbs (chervil?).  Tart but not bracing.  Long finish.  This might improve a bit but should make great drinking over the next ten to twelve years.  It will work well with lighter foods and should be a nice match for broiled sea food.
