Cellar up to 10 years. No need to decant.

Founded by the Cistercian monks of the Zwettl monastery in 1171, the nearly 1,000-year-old Schloss Gobelsburg winery is located in the Austrian Danube region. The first vineyards planted in Heiligenstein and Gaisberg are still among the best on the estate today. Since 1996 the fortunes of this company have been managed by Michael Moosbrugger and his wife Eva. Scion of a hotel dynasty, Michael came from the Arlberg to the Danube as a career change and took on his job with passion and flair, earning a whole host of merits.

All single-vineyard wines, as well as the cellar's finest specialties, carry the Gobelsburg Castle label. These wines show the characteristic subtleties of the appellation vineyards around Krems an der Donau, which are strongly influenced by very different soil structures and climatic zones.

This delicious Riesling Auslese from Schloss Gobelsburg shows an intense bouquet of white tropical fruit notes, inviting flower honey, hints of passion fruit, pineapple, and stone fruit in the background. On the palate it is a fruity thrill, with juicy yellow exotic fruits, peach, pineapple, citrus, grapefruit. The wine is extremely elegant and balanced with lively acidity, strong residual sweetness, and fine citrus nuances in the aftertaste. It is delightfully tempting and shows good development potential.

It is a great dessert wine, the perfect companion with apricot tarts and any fruit-based dessert. For a special treat, try it with Roquefort, or Spicy Gorgonzola.
