Why do we love this wine?

Austrian rieslings always evoke a level of wonder in me. There’s a perfumed ethereality but at the same time, a level of weight and complexity seldom achieved by rieslings grown outside of the EU. This one is no exception.

The fruit comes off two of the top sites in Kamptal - Gaisberg and Heiligenstein, steep, south and south-west facing sites which have earned the status of “Erste Lage” - Austria’s answer to Grand Cru. Unique soils each add their own signature and the amphitheatre-like slopes capture the sun, allowing exposure for optimal ripeness. 

There’s a slight reductiveness, similar to the smell of fresh rain on asphalt, but it’s fleeting, while the talcy minerality lingers. Now we are officially in riesling territory and notes of lychee, apricot and jasmine flower take over. They’re subtle and in check, which allows the citrus driven acidity to flow seamlessly from start to finish. 

She’s a stunner and has the genes to age gracefully if given the chance. I know it’s hard, but I promise you’ll thank me.
