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
After last year’s earliest harvest in recorded history, picking this year commenced at
the customary time. And the good weather that greeted the harvesters was
particularly gratifying, since all the grapes could be brought in according to plan
without any element of stress. The warm vegetation cycle with its dry spells brought
excellent ripeness to the clusters, along with average volume, while the cool autumn
nights imparted excellent fruit and good acid backbone to the grape material.


Vineyard
The Kaeferberg vineyard is situated in one of the finest locations around Langenlois
and is based on the best primary rock soil with layers of limestone. Following the
philosophy that only the best grapes produce high quality wines, meticulous care
and attention is paid to the vines. Each vine is pruned on an individual basis to
ensure a more balanced aeration and exposure to the sun, resulting in healthy
grapes. Yields are kept low, in order to concentrate the flavours in the berries and at
harvest the berries are scrupulously sorted by hand, ensuring only the top quality fruit
is vinified.


Winemaking
Whole bunches of Grüner Veltliner were hand-picked from this single vineyard when
they had reached optimal physiological ripeness and maximum flavour
concentration. After skin-contact maceration for several hours to extract flavour, the
grapes were pressed and settled. The must was fermented with wild and selected
yeasts in stainless steel tanks to retain the varietal characteristics and purity of fruit.
Following fermentation and racking, the wine rested without sulphur for at least 10
days until the lees settled. The wine remained on its lees for approximately six months
which imparted texture and complexity.


Tasting Note
Aromas of ripe pineapple are complemented by delicate hints of honey, marzipan
and vanilla. Fresh and bright on the palate with savoury minerality through to a long,
creamy finish.
