Ried Heiligenstein Riesling 2019, Kamptal DAC

0.75l / 50,00
1.50l / 106,00
3l / 219,00

Weinwisser 18,5/20 p
Golden yellow with immense tears. Fine scents of apricot compote and vanilla pudding with hints of herbs de Provence, lemon verbena and – with more air – hot stones and a handful of earth that holds them all together.  Very dense with powerful minerality; a creamy mouthful delivering tones of candied fruit, apple and zest; lovely extract sweetness with balanced acidity; also a fine saltiness. A calm yet demanding wine that thrills with its enormous minerality, thanks to the lower alcohol level. (tasted by wine academic Johannes Fiala)

Food recommendation
spicy fish dishes – even garlic-infused; an ideal match with Serbian carp.
