Schloss Gobelsburg, a Cistercian monastic estate founded in Austria's Kamptal Valley in 1171 (1171!), is one of the largest holders of local “Grand Cru” terroirs: Heiligenstein, Gaisberg, Lamm, Renner, and Grub. When you mix all that tradition and terroir with the top-notch winemaking you get brilliant, age-worthy wines of complexity and depth.

Eva and Michael Moosbrugger were granted the winemaking and viticultural contract in 1996, and with the help and guidance of Michael’s mentor, Willi Bründlmayer, the winery has regained its prestige and is considered to be a leader in quality and innovation.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 93
"Gobelsburg's 2017 Grüner Veltliner Tradition is clear, ripe and intense on the slightly oaky but deep and complex nose. Ripe, lush, elegant and intense on the palate, this is a full-bodied, rich and powerful yet spicy-mineral Veltliner with a firm tannin structure and remarkable aging potential. It's a typical Veltliner and needs five or more years to integrate its phenols and reduce its baby fat. Again, this is entirely based on the Renner fruit." -Stephan Reinhardt

"Editor's Choice. The aromas of fir honey, salty yeast and white pepper combine on the vivid, spicy nose. Those flavors also play on the slender, juicy palate where glorious sprays of white pepper take center stage against a backdrop of salt, honey and pear." -Anne Krebiehl

What importer Skurnik Wines has to say about this wine...

Gobelsburg’s “Tradition” bottlings are produced as an homage to the winemaking styles of the first half of the 19th century. From 1800 to 1850 winemaking tended toward are more aromatic and, yes, Baroque style. This was achieved by providing the wines with more oxygen while aging in oak. In the case of the Gobeslburg Tradition, the grapes are pressed with a basket press s and fermented naturally without temperature control in 25 hl Manhartsberg oak casks (double foudre). After fermentation, the wines are racked every 3 to 4 months to let the wine ‘breathe’ and to decant from the lees. This process lasts for about two years until the wine is ready to be bottled.
