Grüner Veltliner Käferberg Reserve 2017 – Weingut Rabl
Lovely aromas of red and green apples, together with a touch of spice. Notes of ripe pineapple and white pepper lead to a mineral, spicy and harmonious palate with a long, creamy finish.
The grapes for this single-vineyard Gruner Veltliner Kaferberg Reserve Weingut Rabl were handpicked when they had reached optimal physiological ripeness and maximum flavour concentration. After pressing and settling, the must be fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain the varietal characteristics and purity of fruit. The wine was aged for six months on the lees which imparted texture and complexity.
The Kaeferberg vineyard is situated in one of the finest locations around Langenlois and is based on the best primary rock soil with layers of limestone. Following the philosophy that only the best grapes produce high-quality wines, meticulous care and attention is paid to the vines. Each vine is pruned on an individual basis to ensure more balanced aeration and exposure to the sun, resulting in healthy
grapes. Yields are kept low, in order to concentrate the flavours in the berries and at harvest the berries are scrupulously sorted by hand, ensuring the top quality fruit is vinified.
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.
