Dinner was a simple roast chicken and I was in the mood for something lighter. The Gobelsburger was just about perfect. Light, refreshing, focused, and a great compliment to the food.
There was a good whiff of kerosene at the start but I decanted the bottle and after a few minutes that aroma faded. Citrus peel and white flowers in the nose. Medium body wine with great acid that flooded the mouth with texture, tartness and a taste of a cold, crisp apple. Very good length to the finish and bone dry and refreshing at the very end.
If one isn't a fan of the sweet sensation in a German Riesling this trocken (dry style) Riesling is a great alternative. Truly nice wine.
Schloss-Gobelsburg Gobelsburger Riesling, Kamptal Austria. 12.5% alcohol and $20.
