Lovely aromas of sweet peaches and ripe melon with vanilla through to a richly textured palate. Beautifully balanced sweetness which is rich but not cloying with great length retaining freshness throughout.

Located in the prestigious Kamptal-Donau (Danube) wine region of Austria, Weingut Rabl is a byword for wines of the highest quality. The winery enjoys a wine growing tradition dating back to 1750. Now under the careful eye of Rudolf Rabl Jr. the estate comprises 75 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 painstaking care in the vineyards and modern winemaking techniques to produce a multi-award winning range of complex wines.
The grapes are picked in the middle of winter, in sub zero conditions so that the grapes are frozen and their sugars are very concentrated. They are then pressed and separated from the must. Fermentation takes place in oak barrels for 14weeks and then aged in oak barrel for 10 months thereafter.
