Zöbinger Heiligenstein

Riesling

2019

Kamptal DAC, Erste Lage ÖTW

A kaleidoscope of fruit, particularly vineyard peach, passion fruit and lime accompanied by chili-like spice. Exudes cool elegance, crystal clear and delicate. Concentrated and lively with brioche, white currants and a salty note lingering on the long finale.

Viktor Siegl

The Bründlmayer family owns 12 hectares right in the centre of the Zöbinger Heiligenstein. It's not only the oldest but probably also the most interesting on our estate: the soil consists of approximately 270 Mio years old Perm desert sandstone.

The 2019 vintage
Our vineyards, all certificated BIO since 2018 (Lacon-AT-BIO-402), started well-tended into the 2019 vegetation period. Spring began dry and almost summery, following a warm and moderately humid winter. Early sprouting gave rise to the fear of late frosts. In fact, in May it became rather cool, though temperatures remained mostly above the danger threshold, and thus we came away with only little damage. The humidity accompanying the cold proved to be a blessing, as it brought the vines well-hydrated to a quite early flowering. However, we were around two weeks later compared to the earliest year - 2018. By the end of august, we began...

Maturation

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

Food pairing recommendation

All types of seafood, grilled fish, fried chicken or pork a good alternative to red wine in combination with roast duck; matches with all various elegant Asian dishes.
