Riesling Heiligenstein

The Rieslings from the famous Zöbinger Heiligenstein vineyard almost always display a very distinctive minerality originating from the unique geology consisting of volcanic rock and desert sandstone. The wines from this remarkable site usually need some bottle age to open up. When mature, they show impressive structure and very distinctive aromatics reminiscent of white, often exotic fruit and strong minerality. The ageability of the Heiligenstein Rieslings is legendary.

The Heiligenstein is currently considered by most winelovers to be one of the very best vineyards in all of Europe. Here, volcanic rock has been blanketed with desert sandstone from the Permian period – this formation, which arose some 250–270 million years ago, offers a solid basis for growing the finest Rieslings. The microclimate in this shell-shaped vineyard stimulates the aromas that are the most characteristic of this noble variety. And between the vineyard parcels one encounters flora and fauna that are more typically found in far distant southern, Mediterranean environs.

A great match with grilled meat, goose, duck and game birds as well as richer fish such as salmon, swordfish and catfish, and sushi or sashimi. Stunning with matured white and red cheeses.

Heiligenstein Riesling is whole cluster pressed and then exclusively fermented with natural yeasts without any kind of temperature control. It is matured in large oak casks, resting on the fine lees through April of the year following harvest and bottled in July.
