Beautiful bottle with a lot of potential. Green/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose is full of minerals with a slight petrol note. With air, red apples come out. Slightly oily texture which is nice. On the palate, lemons with underlying minerality. Very deep with a long finish. This just kept improving in the glass. It probably needs a couple/few more years in the cellar and should drink well for another twelve to fifteen after than. This would work well with grilled trout but also a wide variety of foods as it seems very food friendly.
This is made from various terraced vineyards and brought up in stainless steel tanks. Green/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose has minerals, slight floral notes and a slight pineapple quality. Nice texture. There does seem to be a bit of sweetness which is surprising although it certainly would not be considered a sweet or even semi-sweet wine. On the palate, there is a nice quince note with underlying minerality. It is delicious and ready to drink now but should last for another eight to ten years easily. It drinks well on its own and will work great with (not too spicy) Thai
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.
A very different vintage from the generous 2019, this wine shows a lot of concentration and reflects the "premier cru" vineyard. Yellow/golden in color, clear and bright. The nose features spice, minerals but also a bit of tropical fruits/pineapple. Medium bodied. Slightly viscous in texture. On the palate, this is dry and tight, but unwinds in the glass. Lots of minerality, some pineapple, along with slight tannins. Long finish. This drinks well on its own but will work better with food. This would work well with a yellow curry dish. Hold for a few years and then drink over the n
Consumed at the winery. Made from younger vines in Gaisberg and Heiligenstein. Light yellow/hay/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose is tight but with good minerality and light alfalfa notes. Medium bodied. Slightly viscous texture. Bolder on the palate with good acidity. Slight pineapple notes with minerality. Long finish. This is a nice value and drinking well now. A bit generic in profile but that's ok. It drinks well on its own and should be very food friendly. Fried zucchini strips would work very well. Drink over the next five to seven years.
Consumed at Heuriger Hamböck in Krems, Austria. Yellow gold in color, clear and bright. Very tight nose. Some minerality. Moderate acidity. On the palate, slight lemons on the finish. This is fine for sipping outside with some casual food. Inexpensive, the price listed is to consume at the Heuriger. Goes well with lighter foods. Drink now.
Tasted at the Bach-Hengel Heuriger in Vienna, Austria. Heuriger are sort of like single winery, wine bars. Sort of. Greed/gold in color, clear and bright. Slight nose of minerals and slight pineapple. On the palate, this is refreshing. Some minerality and slight pineapple. A bit of heat on the finish. This is more about having fun, meeting new friends and having some local eats. Drink over the next year or two. It went well with fried vegetables.
From Magnum. Very nice showing for this wine. Deep golden in color, clear and bright. This has slight petrol, orange peel, and apricot on the nose. Quite enticing. Medium bodied. Viscous. Dry. On the palate, this has a nice vibrancy. Not really showing old although certainly mature. Apricot, peaches and minerality with good acidity. Long finish. This is delicious on its own and worked very well with fried onion rings and tater tots. In this format, this could probably go another ten to twenty years. (Price listed is for a 750ml)
This is a trocken (dry) Riesling from Lower Austria. Purchased off the list at Palmen Haus Brasserie in Vienna. Golden in color with green hues, clear and bright. The nose is outstanding. Peaches, slight lemon citrus, a hint of honey and wet rocks. Medium bodied. Crisp. On the palate, it feels like it will be sweet, but it is dry. Peach, apricots with underlying minerality and wet stones. Long finish. Very refreshing on a hot day but quite food friendly. It went very well with a vegan Jackfruit Chili Con Carne Taco if not the traditional food pairing. Drink over the next twenty
Nice to revisit this wine. It seems full mature at this point. Golden in color, clear and bright. The nose has some limes along with a touch of yellow grapefruit and a bit of petrol. Medium bodied. On the palate, this has a nice complexity. Citrus and minerality. With age this has rounded out and while it drinks well on its own, it is very food friendly. Drink over the next five to ten years.
