Weingut Rabl Gruner Veltliner Eiswein Kamptal 2016

Delicious and full flavours of apricot and mango enhanced by caramel and caramelised brown sugar, luscious and rich.

Producer Note

Located in the prestigious Kamptal-Donau wine region of Austria, Weingut Rabl is a byword for wines of the highest quality. The winery enjoys a vine growing tradition dating back to 1750. Now under the careful eye of Rudolf Rabl Jr. the estate comprises 100 hectares of the best hillside vineyards in and around Langenlois. The Kamp Valley has a unique microclimate and rich soils with an abundance of minerals. Rudolf Rabl combines these natural resources with sustainable practices in the vineyard and modern winemaking techniques to produce a multi-award winning range of complex wines. In 2019, Weingut Rabl was awarded the IWSC Trophy for White Wine Maker of the Year.

Vintage

The 2016 vintage experienced a cool spring, followed by a summer with high amounts of precipitation. However, late August and September brought a period of sunny and stable weather conditions, enabling the grapes to reach maturity, resulting in a good balance between sugar, ripeness and acidity.

Vineyard

Following the philosophy that only the best grapes produce high quality wines, meticulous care and attention is paid to the vines. A foliage treatment is used to ensure a more balanced aeration and exposure to the sun, resulting in healthy grapes. The vineyards at Weingut Rabl are either the best primary rock soil vineyards in and around Langenlois or based on rich loess soils that are of the same high calibre.

Winemaking

The grapes are picked in the middle of winter, in sub zero conditions so that the grapes are frozen and their sugars are very concentrated. They are then pressed and separated from the must. Fermentation takes place in oak barrels for 14 weeks and then aged in oak barrel for 10 months thereafter.

Tasting Note

Lovely aromas of sweet peaches and ripe melon with vanilla through to a richly textured palate. Beautifully balanced sweetness which is rich but not cloying with great length retaining freshness throughout.
