Located in the prestigious Kamptal-Donau (Danube) wine region of Austria, Rabl winery enjoys a wine growing tradition which goes back to 1828 and which is now under the careful eye of Rudolf Rabl Jr. The estate comprises 50 hectares around the hills of Langenlois. The vines are strictly pruned and yields are kept low to obtain good extract in the grapes which are harvested by hand. Temperature controlled fermentation and maturation takes place in stainless steel or in wooden barrels in a cellar that is located 7 metres underground.
Kamptal Donau is the best area for the production of fine Gruner Veltiner wines, the signature white grape for Austria.
Grape: 100% Gruner Veltliner
Vinification: The grapes are picked in the middle of winter, in sub zero conditions so that the grapes are frozen and their sugars are very concentrated. They are then pressed and separated from the must. Fermentation takes place in oak barrels for 14 weeks and then the wine is aged in oak barrel for 10 months thereafter.
Tasting note: Peach and floral on the nose, ripe melon and honeysuckle, refreshing acidity and a long finish
