Schloss Gobelsburg Tradition Heritage 50 Years 850 Jubilee Edition

$202.00

To celebrate the tradition and culture of 850 years of winemaking accordingly, the Cellar-Master of the estate created a very special Cuvée. A Cuvée that was blended from vintages of the past 50 years of the estate. This is possible because the monks own a library back to the 1940’s and donated some significant stock for this ‘once in a lifetime’ project.

Incredibly deep and complex, this has all the mystery of great white wines that have matured for decades in the bottle, but is still lively. Delicate candied-citrus, baked-apple and honeycomb aromas, but the more you smell this the more you find in it! Sensational concentration and finesse through the long, filigree finish. This limited-production blend includes wines from 31 vintages over five decades, going back to 1970. There are also 9 grape varieties in there, gruner veltliner and riesling forming the base. -99 pts, James Suckling

Winery Profile:
Winemaking at the castle dates back several centuries. The oldest archaeological record finds the Gobelsburg’s site dates back some 4,000 years, and a castle of this name is mentioned in 1178. The castle and grounds were sold to the Cistercian monks of Zwettl Abbey in 1740 and have been in its possession ever since. In 1996, the present managers, Michael Moosbrugger and Willi Bründlmayer, took over the management of the property. The winery and the wines have won numerous awards and accolades.
