Zöbinger Heiligenstein Alte Reben
Kamptal DAC, Erste Lage ÖTW
Finely coiled, extremely refined fruit of honeydew melon & white peach, some lime peel here as well, a bit contained despite the great ripeness. At once seeking the depths, discreet & distinguished, still a little more restrained than the Lyra. On the palate, however, the wine takes off, coiled & concentrated fruit flavours – unparalleled rich texture, always concentrated but always refreshing; simultaneously clear as a bell & quite complex, scores big for its vitality & breeding, an exceptional Riesling here, with great length & a great future.

An excellent food companion with grilled fish, roast or fried chicken, salted or smoked meats (but without sauerkraut!), Wiener schnitzel, or as an alternative to red wine with roast duck or goose. It’s also ideally suited to many hearty exotic dishes . After some years of maturing, it can be recommended for fish with a variety of sauces - such as beurre blanc or Riesling cream sauce.
