Weingut Rabl Gruner Veltliner Kaeferberg 2017
Located in the prestigious Kamptal-Donau (Danube) wine region of Austria, Weingut Rabl is a byword for wines of the highest quality. The winery enjoys a wine growing tradition dating back to 1750. Now under the careful eye of Rudolf Rabl Jr. the estate comprises 75 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 painstaking care in the vineyards and modern winemaking techniques to produce a multi-award winning range of complex wines.
The grapes were harvested and the fermentation was started spontaneously with natural yeasts. The fermentation was carried out with part of the wine in stainless steel tanks and the remainder in large oak vats. The wine was then aged in tank for 1 year.
Rabl's philosophy in their vineyards is that only the best grapes produce high quality wines. Rabl uses meticulous foliage treatment to ensure a more balanced aeration and exposure to the sun.
Lovely aromas of green apples and pears together with pepper through to a mineral, spicy and harmonious palate with great length.
