The Riesling from the most famous location of the Kamptal valley inspires with its perfect sugar / acid balance and has still a lot of storage potential.

"Georg Leindl's 2017 Zöbinger Heiligenstein 1ÖTW Riesling displays a clear and spicy bouquet of ripe white fruits. Full-bodied and round on the firmly structured palate, this is a dense, juicy, well concentrated and floral Riesling with fine bitterness on the intense, lemon-fresh finish. Still very young."
Stephan Reinhardt

Fits with fish, seafood or white meat.

Vineyard Heiligenstein

The Heiligenstein with its reddish, weathered desert sandstone and the conglomerates of volcanic components is one of the best Riesling sites in the area. Between the vineyards there is a flora and fauna as is otherwise only to be found in far southern, Mediterranean regions. On the terraces the Riesling thrives in its particularly fine-spicy character. The hard bedrock releases the layer-specific minerals into the grapes and creates terroir-specific wines. The south-facing location in a basin creates a special microclimate which promotes the typical fruit aromas in the Riesling.

The Vintage 2018

Die warmen Frühjahrsmonate sorgten für einen äußerst frühen Austrieb und auch Blüte. Die warmen und großteils sehr trockenen Sommertage trieben das Wachstum und auch die Reife sehr stark voran, was dazu führte, dass bereits ende August anfang September die Lese startete.
