Riesling Maximum 2020
Many decades of growth form vines of mighty, gnarly stature. Our Maximum is sourced from a selction of these low yielding old vines. Their roots dig deep in the meager primary rock soils of our historic terraced slopes. Only the most valuable grapes of a vintage remain on the vine during the main picking season and are harvested very late, after reaching their beautifully golden ripeness and full flavour potential. Before bottling, the wine spends at least two full winters on the lees. This is how this dense and juicy Riesling is created, with the unmistakable Hiedler signature.

From 40-80 years old vines. The grapes were selectively harvested by hand in various parts in late October and early November. Destemmed, slightly crushed and macerated for several hours. Gently pressed with low pressure. Fermented in stainless-steel and oak barrel. Matured on the lees for over two winters. Bottled at high atmospheric pressure during the waxing moon in August 2021.
Delightful melange of fruits, red peaches, apricot pulp, orange biscuit, a hint of limoncello; wunderfully rich fruit, super juicy and totally balanced, subtle and elegant, gains more and more momentum towards the end and remains generous to the last drop.
