ABOUT: Schloss Gobelsburg was in the hands of monks for the last millennium and since 1996 in the hands of Eva and Michael Moosbrugger. They 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. Check out this great article about Schloss Gobelsburg from vinography.com.

TASTE: A stunning, vibrating surge of green lightning acidity blended with crystalline apple and pear fruit flavors, lemon and lime peels with loads of salinity and a long finish. Pure and focused fruit flavors, stones, grapefruits and broccoli...don't worry, and don't be afraid of this gem from the blessed soils of Gobelsburg. Drink it up, and if you're like me, scribble some notes for future embarrassment.

PAIR: Cantaloupe, figs, ginger, Asian salads, sesame, cabbage, celery root, garlic, pineapple, and blackberries.
