Schloss Gobelsburg Eiswein 2016, 37.5 cl
An expressive Grüner Veltliner based Eiswein from this iconic producer. A benchmark dessert wine with structure and balance.
Region | Kamptal, Lower Austria
Grape Variety | Grüner Veltliner
Also known as ‘gru-vee’. From the light bodied, crisp, fresh and lean style to the fuller-bodied riper styles, GV or gru-vee as it’s become known, can deliver it all. The hallmark of a good Gruner is its acidity level which is always high. Don’t be fooled by its delicate expression as it first hits your palate; this grape tends to open up on the mid-palate to express citrus, spicy and mineral notes. Always with a good length. The younger wine for everyday enjoyment tend to show some white pepper and lime notes. At the more premium end, single vineyard produced wines or slightly aged styles, have a richer body and mouthfeel with complexity
Size | Half Bottle / 37.5cl
Style | Full Bodied
A wine that is over 13.5% alcohol with more complex flavours and a richer mouthfeel. Factors such as climate, grape variety, ageing in the winery, residual sugar level and alcohol level affect the fullness of flavour and will be good clues to look out for. A full-bodied wine would the equivalent to blue-top whole fat milk. Knowing your preference towards a light bodied wine vs a full-bodied wine can help you to find a wine you’ll enjoy. If you enjoy full-bodied wines with bold intensity, look out for these grape varieties; whites with 3+ years ageing, for the reds Malbec, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat, Mavrud
