Grüner Veltliner Eiswein 2016 – Weigut Rabl (375 ml)
Lovely aromas of sweet peaches and ripe melon with vanilla through to a richly textured palate. The beautifully balanced sweetness which is rich but not cloying with great length retaining freshness throughout.
The grapes to produce the Gruner Veltliner Eiswein Weigut Rabl 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 aged in oak barrel for 10 months thereafter.
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 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.
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 vine 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 a range of complex wines.
