Schloss Gobelsburg Renner Gruner Veltliner 2019
This wine is sourced from the Erste Lage Renner, which is comprised of loess, gneiss, and mica. Renner is situated on the bottom slope of the Ried Gaisberg Riesling terraces-the bottom slope has a deeper soil structure and offers more water retention than the primary rock higher on the slopes making it perfect for growing top quality Gr ner Veltliner. Fresh yeast still plays uppermost in the aromatic register of this spicy wine. The palate, enhanced by slight spritz, then speaks of white pepper, crushed sage, lemon freshness and a subtle but insistent yeast. This is gorgeous, slender, savory and utterly moreish. Drink by 2040. Cellar Selection. Always the first 1er cru that is ready to be bottled (in July), the 2019 Kammern Ried Renner 1 TW displays a radiant lemon-yellow color and opens with a beautifully clear, bright, intense and elegant, remarkably refined and distinctive bouquet of broom blossoms intertwined with flinty lemon aromas of crushed stones. Everything is perfectly intermingled and gives that distinctive, elegant and refined, dense and calm style. The attack on the palate is vibrantly fresh and still nervous (vinified in an old five-hectoliter oak vat), but the wine develops a dense, complex, finely salty and structured mid-palate with a long, intense and persistent finish that reveals fine tannins and characteristic salinity. This is an impressive Renner. 13.5% alcohol. Tasted at Schloss Gobelsburg in June 2021.
