Rudolf Rabl Langenlois Gruner Veltliner 2017 - August 2019 Decanter review
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.
The vineyards sites surround the town of Langenlois, providing the option of selecting grapes from cooler, more windy sites that yield wines with vibrant acidity and combining them with those of more sun-exposed terraces producing rich wines. The vineyards are situated on broad loess terraces that are up to 40m deep, which yield powerful wines with vibrant acidity and mineral elegance.
The harvest for this wine took four weeks; a careful combination of different harvest states that ranged from fresh and fruity with good acidity levels to later harvested grapes which contributed richness and more body. The wine was fermented and matured in stainless steel tanks, preserving the unique characteristics of each terroir.
100% Grüner Veltliner.
Subtle apple and green pepper aromas through to a spicy and vibrant, full flavoured and clean palate. A spicy opening with subtle aromas of apple, soft honeydew melon through to a well defined, creamy body with good fleshiness and juicy cascading acidity. A dynamic palate with a savoury peppery spicy finish. A lovely example of the Grüner Veltliner grape. Perfect with regional Austrian dishes such as pan-fried meat (schnitzel) with potato salad but also delicious with grilled seafood and creamy risottos.
