Schloss Gobelsburg Erste Ried Gaisberg 1er 2019 75cl


Tasting Note


With a history going back 850 years, but being a Cistercian-owned estate that is hardly surprising! Since 1995 however the estate has been run by Michael and Eva Moosbrugger who took out a two generation lease on the property. Under Michael’s leadership the estate has grown and now covers 80 hectares. A wide range of wines are produced, and all are of the highest quality (There is sparkling, dry white, red and sweet). Michael’s predecessor, Father Bertrand, brought some Pinot Noir back from Burgundy in the 1950s, and this grape is important both for red and the sparkling wines. But of course it is Grüner Veltliner and Riesling which dominate the vineyards and the portfolio, and there is a range of styles from crisp and lively through to complex and ageworthy.
