The 2019 Zöbing Ried Gaisberg 1ÖTW is a picture-book Kamptal Riesling! Super clear, refined and aromatic on the complex and exciting nose, it reveals apricot and elderflower aromas intertwined with crunchy slate spices (shaly paragneiss, amphibolite and mica shist) that give a very distinctive bouquet. The palate starts electrifying in all its vitality and immediately opens to a palatable Riesling paradise built on perfectly ripe and concentrated fruit (still stone fruits). This Gaisberg Riesling is generous, intense and fleshy but also highly fine, fresh and elegant on the palate, which is as balanced as it is dense and tensioned, leading to a spectacular, long and vivacious finish that makes this 2019 Gaisberg one the finest and most digestible Austrian Rieslings I have had in 20 years. 13% alcohol. Tasted at Schloss Gobelsburg in June 2021 and, to make sure I wasn't in a delirium, in my home office again over several days a month later. ... More details

Ripe mango, a ton of spice and serious concentration make this an imposing, traditional style of Austrian dry riesling. Lots of power at the long finish, where you also get some exotic fruit to go with the substantial portion of spice and minerals. Drink or hold.
Winery
Fully ripened apricot and a touch of lecithin, grapy and balanced, immediately gains depth; youthful and powerful, texture firm, then again yellow-fruit components, generally juicy and very fruity, remains on the palate, promising, spirited acidity on the finish.

green grapes

Varietal: Riesling

Although they originated in Germany's beautiful Rhine Valley, the Riesling grape soon spread around the world, where it thrives in many countries with a colder climate which can support this pale and unique grapes. Riesling grapes are considered one of the finest varietals on earth, capable of expressing fascinating features of the soil type they are grown on, resulting in some highly interesting wines with plenty to offer those who are looking for something different. Riesling grapes are also noted for their aromas, which tend to be highly perfumed, floral and often with smoky notes accentuating their unusual flavor Because this was always the predominant grape grown in Germany and other such countries, Riesling wineries have always been keen to experiment with its range. This has resulted in dry white wines, sparkling wines, semi sweet wines and several others, but the finest examples are usually considered to be the Riesling dessert wines. These are occasionally made with unusual processes, including the 'eiswine' method, in which the grapes are allowed to freeze in the early frosts, or by allowing the development of 'noble rot', which withers the grapes and results in some truly spectacular and unusual flavors.

Country: Austria

Austria is a fascinating country when it comes to wine production, and with a wine culture that stretches back over four thousand years, it is one of the oldest viticultural centers in the world. Today, it is the Grüner Veltliner varietal grape which is the most widely grown and processed, producing elegant dry white wines, and very flavorful and aromatic sweet wines enjoyed to a great extent by local communities, and which are beginning to receive the recognition they deserve by the global wine market. Austria's eastern flatlands benefit from fertile and mineral rich soils, fed by the great river Danube, as well as the long hot summers the country enjoys with low precipitation. Today, over fifty thousand hectares of Austrian land is under vine, and even within the city limits of Vienna, high quality wine is produced and enjoyed.
