ABOUT: Schloss Gobelsburg was in the hands of monks for the last millennium and since 1996 in the hands of Eva and Michael Moosbrugger who were granted the winemaking and viticultural contract, with the guarantee that they would have the property for the next 2 generations. Schloss Gobelsburg has many parcels throughout Kamptal, many of them Erste Lagen, or 1st growths. Moosbrugger has been doing and impeccable job managing the property, eschewing modern, industrial, commercial techniques that make cookie-cutter wines. Moosbrugger has a less-is-more approach and in 2009 and 2010 Gobelsburg was listed as one of the top 100 wineries of the year by Wine & Spirits Magazine.

TASTE: This Gobelsburg Cistercien pink wine is well organized, crisp with clean lines, flavors of strawberry and lemon touched with salt, medium body and a nervy acidity which lingers in the rafters for a bit. Made from a blend of Zweigelt and St. Laurent grape varieties, this is a fine hewn wine which is universally food friendly and an extremely good value. Stock the back of the fridge with this one all summer long.

PAIR: spinach, cucumbers, tomatoes, mild cheeses, hummus, tapenade, and all variety of nuts.
