Jurtschitsch Zobinger Heiligenstein Erste Lage Riesling 2021

Size: 750ml

James Suckling: 94, Wine Advocate: 93

"In our terraces on the Zöbing Heiligenstein, Riesling vines are rooted in 270 year old Zöbing Perm rock, a unique geological formation of volcanic origin. Grapes harvested by hand have been transformed into wine with great care and aged in our 700-year-old natural cellar in large wooden barrels. The vines planted on meager terraces, produce a Riesling of a very special style. It reflects the unique terroir with exciting minerality and complex density. On the nose as well as on the palate this Riesling unfolds with precise fruit and mineral structure. A wine with great character and ageing potential." —winemaker

"A beautiful dry riesling from the Heiligenstein site that is more creamy than these wines normally are, but this fits very neatly with the subtle apricot fruit. Long, complex finish, in which notes of melted butter and crushed stone mingle. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Screw cap." —James Suckling

"Aged on its lees in 2,000-liter native oak barrels until summer, the 2021 Ried Heiligenstein 1ÖTW Riesling shows depth as well as ripe, elegant fruit with notes of stone fruits and weathered rock. Juicy, elegant and dense in the mouth, this is a powerful, mouthfilling, intense and complex Riesling that is somewhat lactic on the finish. It shows plenty of substance but still little pleasure. Give it time! 13% stated alcohol. Screw-cap closure. Tasted in Grafenegg in September 2022." —Wine Advocate
