Riesling Ried Heiligenstein 2022
A vineyard that defines our Kamptal landscape like no other and stands as one of the most renowned and exceptional crus in Austria. The Heiligenstein is a unique geological formation within Europe; a geological island. The old vines thrive in a multifaceted sedimentary soil structure, featuring sandstone conglomerate alongside red arkoses and volcanic quartz porphyries. This Permian soil, dating back 280 million years, is truly unique. 60-year-old vines, planted on narrow terraces, yield a highly complex Riesling with a strong personality and a delicately spicy mineral expression.
[1.ÖTW = Classified Vineyard, Erste Lage (Premier Cru)] [Ried = Austrian Term for single vineyard, same meaning as “Lage”]

Wine description
Individual and complex aroma of yellow grapefruits and ripe apricots, all framed by floral notes and enveloped in oriental spices. Firmly structured, grippy texture, delicate exotic hints, juicy and rich, an oriental smokiness gradually develops on the long finish. Pure Heiligenstein minerality! Great aging potential!
