We've tried to find a better Grüner from Austria's Kamptal region and simply have not.

We've gone both up and down the Grüner food chain and the result is always the same.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Quality for price, this is the finest Grüner Veltliner on the market.

Once you drink Schloss Gobelsburg's "Steinsetz" Grüner Veltliner, you'll be reaching for it so often you'll ask, "What white did we drink before we knew about Grüner?"

Among the many wonderful attributes of Grüner Veltliner is its ability to pair well with foods you never thought you'd find a wine for. For example, avocado, artichokes, asparagus and every manner of obstreperous veggie, Grüner Veltliner loves them.

Need a white wine for a wild mushroom saute? Step right up. Want a wine for a peppery salad with arugula, here you go. Not to mention, the wine is a perfect complement to any Asian or seafood cuisine.

Schloss Gobelsburg is the oldest winery in the Danube dating back to 1711 and received Winery Of The Year in 2006. The 'Steinsetz' bottling is a classic style showing pure salt and pepper on the palate with young citrus notes, peach kernel and wet stone. The wine is clean and bright with fresh minerality. Terrific when drunk young, it is extremely age-worthy. You can easily set it down for ten years allowing it to become rich and weighty without losing its vibrancy.

Enjoy!

$29.95 per bottle / $359.40 per case

Summary


THE MERCHANT'S MARK

92+ / 100

Schloss Gobelsburg's Steinsetz is a mineral driven white that reveals young citrus and peach flavors that are offset by refreshing notes of salt, pepper and spice. Bright acidity and wet stone flintiness lead way to a velvety texture that intensifies as the wine opens. Great when drunk young, this wine can easily be set down for 10 years. Enjoy with salads, seafood of any kind, and temperamental vegetables such as asparagus that are quite difficult to pair. Enjoy!

THE WINE ENTHUSIAST

92 / 100

"Fresh lime and ivy hits you first, followed by a leesy hint and some pear on the nose. The palate comes in with salty savoriness that suggests yeasty miso, chervil and lovage, with lots of white pepper accented by a little spritz. Brightened by fresh lemon notes, this makes for a spicy, elegant and slender wine with a light touch and real depth."
