From a "premier cru" vineyard that has the oldest vines used by Schloss Gobelsburg.  Green/yellow/gold in color, clear and bright.  The wine has some heft to it, even in thinner vintages.  It is fuller, "meatier" than the Gaisberg vineyard.  Lots of minerals and spice, and some floral notes.  Medium to full bodied.  Good acidity.  On the palate, slight peach, but this is more about minerality and spice.  Dry.  Long finish.  This is delicious now, but really needs a few years to flesh out. It drinks well on its own but should be very food friendly.  A nice salmon steal off the grill would work well.  Drink over the next fifteen years.
