Schloss Gobelsburg 'Tradition' Grüner Veltliner

Gobelsburg’s “Tradition” bottlings are produced as an homage to the winemaking styles of the first half of the 19th century. From 1800 to 1850 winemaking tended toward are more aromatic and, yes, Baroque style. This was achieved by providing the wines with more oxygen while aging in oak. In the case of the Gobeslburg Tradition, the grapes are pressed with a basket press s and fermented naturally without temperature control in 25 hl Manhartsberg oak casks (double foudre). After fermentation, the wines are racked every 3 to 4 months to let the wine ‘breathe’ and to decant from the lees. This process lasts for about two years until the wine is ready to be bottled.
