Schloss Gobelsburg “Ried Lamm” 1er Cru, Kamptal DAC
Ried (single vineyard, cru) Lamm is situated on the southeast slope of the Heiligenstein. Erosion material from Heiligenstein (perm, red siltstone) and a high proportion of clay can be found at this site.
The vineyard is south-facing and very well exposed. This helps develop the grapes for a wine that, after maturation in traditional double-foudre casks from local forest of Manhartsberg, result in a wine with power and elegance.
It’s not often that a young Austrian gruner veltliner reminds you of Burgundy, though mature examples often do. The ripe-mirabelle, candied-pineapple and dried-herb aromas are married to a palate that’s rich and creamy. But beneath the waterline this is also a highly structured wine. Rather imposing finish, suggesting excellent aging potential.
