A spicy opening with yellow apple, wood apple, soft honeydew melon, a well defined body with good fleshiness, juicy cascading acidity - a dynamic palate with a savoury peppery spicy finish.
Located in the prestigious Kamptal-Donau (Danube) wine region of Austria, Weingut Rabl is a byword for wines of the highest quality. The winery enjoys a wine growing tradition dating back to 1750. Now under the careful eye of Rudolf Rabl Jr. the estate comprises 75 hectares of the best hillside vineyards in and around Langenlois. The Kamp Valley has a unique microclimate and rich soils with an abundance of minerals. Rudolf Rabl combines these natural resources with painstaking care in the vineyards and modern winemaking techniques to produce a multi-award winning range of complex wines.
The vines are planted on broad loess terraces that are up to 40 m deep. They vary in their locations surrounding the town of Langenlois, providing the option of selecting grapes from cooler more windy sites that yield flavour-rich wines and combining them with those of more sun exposed terraces.
20-40m deep loess soils that yield powerful wines with vibrant acidity and mineral elegance.
The harvest for this wine took four weeks; a careful combination of different harvest states that ranged from fresh/fruity with a nice acidity with later harvested material which contributes richness and more body. The wine was fermented and matured in stainless steel tanks.
