From a plot with vines of average age 45 years, oldest are 70-80 years old. Quite exotic nose, real depth of flavour with hints of honeycomb, ripe pear and fresh herbs. Fairly low acidity for this variety and location, but wonderful concentration and a long finish. Already beautiful to drink.
Noticeably richer and more intense than the regular Heiligenstein – not necessarily better, but stylistically different.
Fermented in steel, aged in large oak barrels (2,500lt).
