Located in the prestigious Kamptal-Donau 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 100 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 sustainable practices in the vineyard and modern winemaking techniques to produce a multi-award winning range of complex wines.
2017 was a warm vintage, resulting in a rich style of wine of high quality.
Following the philosophy that only the best grapes produce high quality wines, meticulous care and attention is paid to the vines. A foliage treatment is used to ensure a more balanced aeration and exposure to the sun, resulting in healthy grapes. The vineyards at Weingut Rabl are either the best primary rock soil vineyards in and around Langenlois or based on rich loess soils that are of the same high calibre.
The grapes were harvested once they had reached the desired levels of maturity. Fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel in order to preserve the freshness and integrity of the Grüner Veltliner characteristics.
Spicy grapefruit with tropical fruit notes on the palate through to a mineral, crisp finish with classic hints of white pepper.
A perfect match with Asian dishes, asparagus, light meats and meatier fish.
