Six senses tour in Gobelsburg

On December 13, 2016, Mortimer Schulz, the founder and owner of solutions in energy e.U., drove from Vienna to Gobelsburg and tasted a young Grüner Veltliner, 2015, Ried Steinsetz, 13.0% vol. alc.  The Vineyard and Castle were reached by driving the FCEV (average 1.5 kilograms of hydrogen per 100 kilometres).  The wine-tasting and the FCEV were compared; thereby alluding to the six senses.

 

SIGHT

Veltliner:   light citric yellow going into pale but clear

FCEV:  intense

HEARING

Veltliner:   you hear the cling of the glasses when you toast

FCEV:   clean (something like “wwwwhhhh”)

SMELL

Veltliner:   fruity but subtle; thanks to the Sun and cold winds from the North

FCEV:   discreet and refreshing

TASTE

Veltliner:   young but strong body with fruity and flowery elements

FCEV:   balanced (see “FCEV senses” below)

TOUCH

Veltliner:   liquid pure

FCEV:   brisk

HYDROGEN

Veltliner:   elementary (in combination with carbon and oxygen)

FCEV:   oxidised.

 

FCEV senses

Emphasis was laid on experiencing the FCEV with all of the senses.  The residual by-product “H2O” as was collected in a glass (see middle picture) was not yet tasted this time.  Further testing coming up.
