Product Description

Heiligenstein Riesling is an elegant wine finely chiselled with finesse and great length. Prominent mineral notes, with citrus, stone fruit and some apple, lightly herbaceous. Clear, juicy, very slightly sweetish fruit on the palate, lively, polished acidity, elegant herbal notes in the background, prominent mineral notes again, firm structure, with a very good finish.

The meaning of Heiligenstein has developed curiously over time from "hell's rock": most likely because of the great summer heat. In geological terms Heiligenstein is also something special: a cone of primeval rock which had pushed through the surrounding area. The top soil consists of weathered crystalline rock, volcanic and desert sands that provides a fine mixture of minerals to the vines and, in addition, retains heat. Considered not only one of the greatest sites for growing Riesling in Austria, but also one of the greatest sites in the world.
