Right from the beginning - a captivating, gorgeous nose with scents of candied pineapple and milk chocolate followed by yellow peach. Mature and powerful, but never overwhelming. Very expressive palate with fruit sweetness and - once again - even with all the power is defined more by finesse. Beautiful tension and suspense, showing a density usually present in a big dessert wine, but without botrytis. An almost festive character complemented by the vibrant, racy acidity. Enough reserves for many, many years to come. Pair with fish, poultry, veal, pork, duck, goose, Asian Cuisine.

The 2016 Riesling Zöbinger Ried Heiligenstein Alte Reben 1ÖTW is deep, clear and elegant on the subtle yet greatly complex nose, displaying bright fruit aromas along with substantial minerality, delicate flintiness and herbal notes. Round and silky on the palate, this is a substantial, highly elegant, sustainable, salty and tensioned Heiligenstein full of finesse and without any age. Very deep and perfectly balanced. A sublime dry Riesling from the Kamptal's greatest terroir. Tasted at the domain in September 2019.

Stony, flinty reduction still clouds the nose of this wine. Underneath, the promise of citrus is evident. On the palate, that citrus freshness is clothed in juicy swirls of ripe apricot and yellow apple. A sonorous take on Riesling that's intriguing and charming at once. Wait for this to come together. Drink 2020-2030.
