RABL Grüner Veltliner, 2017
Taste Profile Where it's from
Gruner-Veltliner is the signature grape of Austria, and it’s most widely planted. Crisp, spicy and refined, Gruner has become highly popular with sommeliers around the world, who appreciate the aromas of lemon peel and grapefruit zest, fleshy stoned fruit texture on the palate, and the distinctive hallmark character of white pepper. Weingut Rudolf Rabl is one of Austria’s leading producers. - Andy Howard MW
About the Wine
Located in the prestigious Kamptal-Donau wine region of Austria, Weingut Rabl is a byword for wines of the highest quality.
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 range of complex wines.
The vineyards at Weingut Rabl are either the best primary rock soil vineyards in and around Langenlois or based on rich loess soils that are of the same high calibre.
After harvest fermentation is done in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to preserve the freshness on the Grüner Veltnier character producing a wine with spicy grapefruit and tropical fruit notes on the palate and a crisp mineral finish.
Goes well with
Gruner-Veltliner is a great match with all types of food – one of the reasons why it is so popular today on restaurant wine lists.
The bright citrus flavours, concentrated palate with a hint of peach/apricot and high acidity, are enhanced by notes of white pepper.
This wine is delicious as an aperitif, with all types of salad, or as an accompaniment to shellfish and grilled fish. Gruner has the ability to work very well with white meat such as pork, and roasted poultry.
