Zöbinger Heiligenstein Lyra

Riesling

2017

Kamptal DAC Reserve, Erste Lage ÖTW

Fully ripened and simultaneously fine-boned, revealing the usual fruit kaleidoscope featuring lime and vineyard peach over nuances of lemon balm and menthol. Distinctive and charming, focused and highly elegant with bracing balance. A touch of pineapple and papaya join countless other facets on the palate. Exemplary in its fine-boned finesse and racy style – a reserve from many, many years of enjoyment.

Awards

From a geological point of view the Zöbinger Heiligenstein is not only the oldest but probably also the most interesting site of our estate.  About 20 % of our Heiligenstein vineyards are trained in a Lyra trellis system. The vine bifurcates in a way that the branches seem to reach to the heavens like sun-worshippers. This method doubles canopy exposure and favors aeration which improves photosynthesis and prevents dreaded fungus diseases. 

Maturation

We ferment the must in stainless steel at a temperature of 15 to 20° Celsius. After fermentation the wine was partly racked into big wooden casks (2.500 liters) to mature for a short period on the fine yeast.

Food pairing recommendation

Austrian cuisine, well-seasoned fish and white meat, Asian dishes, duck, exotic cuisine etc.
