Schloss Gobelsburg 'Lamm' Gruner Veltliner Erste Lage, Kamptal, Austria 2021 (375ml - Half Bottle)

One of the oldest wineries in Austria the Castle Gobelsburg has had vineyards maintained around its walls for over 850 years. The Zwettl Monastery was founded in 1074 and in 1171 the Monks of Zwettl were granted their first vineyards: Heiligenstein & Gaisberg–the oldest documented sites in the Kamptal. The estate and Castle Gobelsburg was controlled by as many as 19 different families between 1074 and 1740, and in 1786 absorbed the famous Kammern Winery and vineyards. Two hundred years later 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 considered to be a leader in quality and innovation. Since its inception, monks have always maintained organic farming practices, a tradition carried on today by the Moosbrugger family.

Winemaker: Eva and Michael Moosbrugger

Farming: Sustainable & Organic

Varieties: Gruner Veltliner

Terroir: Ried (single vineyard, cru) Lamm is situated on the southeast slope of the Heiligenstein. Besides erosion material from Heiligenstein (perm, red siltstone) a high proportion of clay can be found here. The vineyard is south-facing and very well exposed. This helps develop the grapes for a wine that, after maturation in traditional double-foudre casks from local forest of Manhartsberg, shows great power and elegance.

Vinification: Fermented and aged in large Austrian Manhatsberg Oak
