TN '06 Gobelsburger GV


Tonight with a late dinner of leftovers, Jean selected to open:
2006 Schloss Gobelsburg "Gobelsburger" Grüner Veltliner
color: green-gold
nose: effusive minerals, green pea with a touch of honey
palate: rich, mouthfilling, good minerality, decent acidity, loads of
fruit and a hint of honey
Wow! This is my first encounter with the '06 GV vintage, and if this
wine is any indication this is going to be a year to follow. Having
read Michael Pronay's comments re '06, I am now more inclined than ever
to not write them off as overexuberence. Very worth the price at $12.59
(with case discount).

That's a very good price. Personally, I prefer the Wachau style for Gruners (no oak, loads of minerality), but there's not denying the quality of Schloss Gobelsburg. In fact, that's where a vintner we work with, Marion Ebner, gets to tend some grapes for her Melusine project.

Afaik, the basic Schloss Gobelsburg "Gobelsburger" sees no oak.
Btw, she's getting married in September.
