Gobelsburg Gruner Veltliner “Tradition” 2016
Yep, we got a little crazy this year and decided to offer the “Tradition” Veltliner. Tradition refers to the style of making it – Michi, the winemaker – decided to look back into the historical monastic traditions of Gobelsburger and create a wine which honors its history. Crazy, but it gets crazier still. Read Terry’s notes:
“Look, just leave a little space around you. Even as much as a moment. Send the server away. Hold the food. Slow it down. Otherwise this great being will run-off like rain in a thunderstorm. You need to make space for the wine to absorb, into you, into your senses and your heart. We tasted it after the Riesling Tradition. It has more drama and affect than that wine. An overt kick of spice. Yet it photographs your aura. A great deal of the crux and meaning of beauty is sitting in my glass right now.”
And who doesn’t want their aura photographed by the crux of beauty?
