Delightfully spicy with really great structure, it’s great to taste a two year old Lamm from Gobelsburg. No signs of evolution, just great harmony and character here. There’s a light botrytis influence – a note of smoked honey – which works perfectly with the nervy acidity. Slight sweetness on the finish.
Muted nose, but generous palate, with salty apple and quince fruit and some buttery, toasty backnotes. A big, ripe style for Gobelsburg, but of course this has been handled with panache and restraint, and retains considerable harmony and balance.
