Tonight's wine is the 2018 Schlosskellerei Gobelsburg Kamptal Riesling. This wine comes from Osterreich, Austria the A Terry Theise Estate. What a wonderful riesling this is, it checks all the boxes.
On the nose there is green apple, lemon, pear, jasmine, petrol, bicycle rubber tires and minerality.
The palate gives us lemon/lime, green apple, peach, petrol, flinty notes and a nice minerality.
This wine is medium bodied with a great balance and high acidity that gives way to a long crisp citrus finish. What a wonderful wine and a wonderful end to a nice weekend. I hope everyone had the same and stayed safe and healthy. Have a great week ahead. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 4 months ago
First decent sunshine in the garden
Weekend is on early this week
Got delivered a 6 pack split between 2017 and 2016 yesterday
This '17 is delicious!!
It reminds me a lot of a sangiovese from Radda or Castelnuovo Berardenga or even a northern brunello. Vibrant, mineral, but supported by strong shoulders that you can't notice much at this stage. Neat and precise are the violet,tobacco and licorice.
Spices, leather and cola. The fruit is between a blood orange and a raspberry. I dare to say it recalls a Soldera's Brunello. Long, young and enjoyable from now and many years ahead. — 3 months ago
Wonderful past weekend enjoying some lake time with my family. These TX summers are brutal, but some relaxation by the lake always helps!
My first time trying this and after hearing the recent news (Constellation has investment in Booker now, as well as this wine has dropped from $50 to $30 and My Favorite Neighbor has dropped from $70 to $50), this is pretty killer juice for the price. A blend of 65% cab, 20% Syrah, and rounded out by equal parts petit Verdot, Malbec and petite Sirah. Inky, dark, fresh squeezed fruits abound. Aromatically, it showed spice cake, cinnamon, and baked mixed berry pie. The Malbec and petite Sirah show up on the palate with a hint of licorice and black pepper spice. Charcoal, cedar and grilled blackberries. It’s rich and decadent with a big finish. Paired perfectly with marinated skirt steak. — 4 months ago
Second time trying this cuvée and it was a just a great experience. It has great balance of fruit (apple, pear), elegant yet crisp acidity with some weight and texture on the palate. A great champagne for a weekend lunch with the family. Stood up through the whole meal. — 4 months ago
