This Riesling reveals a fascinating bouquet of ripe nectarine, crisp pear and inviting notes of Asian spices. These fragrant elements are intensified by aromatic expressions of vibrant yellow fruits and rich golden hues. On the palate, the wine unveils a harmonious medley of refreshing citrus, succulent peach, and subtle floral hints that culminate in a lingering finish of cream and anise. Its texture is smooth yet distinctive, exhibiting a chewy, almost tannic quality that adds another layer of complexity. This Riesling shines with an unexpected depth that is further enhanced by excellent acidity and refined minerality.
### Pairings & Suggestions
This Riesling pairs excellently with a variety of dishes. Seafood is an obvious choice: Grilled Lobster drizzled with lemon butter sauce is elevated by the wine’s citrus notes, or try serving it with Seared Scallops paired with a mango salsa to enhance the wine’s tropical fruit tones. Poultry dishes, such as Roast Chicken with lemon and thyme, harmonize beautifully with this wine’s vibrant flavours. For the more adventurous, this Riesling holds its own against Asian cuisine. A spicy Thai Green Curry with shrimp provides a tantalizing counterpoint to the wine’s unique Asian spice aromatics, while its acidity and plush texture help cool down the heat of the dish. ### An Ode to the Heiligenstein Vineyard
The Schloss Gobelsburg Ried Heiligenstein 1er Cru Riesling Kamptal is a splendid conception that reflects the unique character of the Heiligenstein vineyard. With a storied history dating back to the 12th century, when Cistercian monks first planted the vineyard, this picturesque location has become an iconic landmark of Langenlois, a wine-growing town in the heart of Kamptal. Today, the vineyard’s singular geological structure, rich history and fertile soil contribute to the delightful complexities of this ambassador of Austrian wines. As each sip unveils vibrant flavours and textured notes that linger on the palate, it’s a silent nod to Schloss Gobelsburg’s deep-seated traditions, authenticity and the extraordinary nature of their terroir.
Store this Riesling in a cool, dark place maintaining a consistent temperature between 10-15 degrees Celsius (50-59 degrees Fahrenheit). The bottle should be stored horizontally, particularly if it has a natural cork, to keep the cork moist. Avoid storing it near strong-smelling substances, as wine can absorb odors from its surroundings. For optimal enjoyment, consume soon after opening.
