A big, powerful Grüner with quite sweet fruit. The fruit character suggests overripeness, although there is a nice bit of acidity that sustains the palate. Salty and hot, rather than mineral per se, this is an assertive wine that lacks Read more
A surprisingly simplistic wine from Schloss Gobelsburg. The winemaking is immaculate, and it’s balanced and refined. However the fruit character is just a bit neutral. Everything in this wine is rather “medium+”

Subtly peppery Grüner, with charming and supple green apple and capsicum fruit on the palate. There’s a rounded, ripe quality to the wine but it has restraint too. Fairly simple and primary at the moment.
