Very floral on the nose, with some white peach notes. The fruit is generous and the finish is long, silken and elegant. A stablemate for Hiedler, this is broader and more fruit dominated than some Heiligensteins.
This is Grüner but with a Riesling-like turbocharge of acidity, and beautiful tangy fruit. Citrus notes dominate, and crushed rocks provide a long and very delicate finish. Very enjoyable, and perfectly balanced.
Wonderful reading of this top vineyard, the nose doesn’t give that much away – some white blossoms and lightly spiced fruit, fruit dominates the attack, but the palate unfolds to show racy acidity and then continues to a delicious honeycomb finish (bone dry). The depth, complexity and length for a such a young wine are
Compared to Jurtschitsch’s younger vines on this site, there is more fruit concentration and a predominance of ripe lemon and grapefruit chunks. Finish is long and bone dry. The linear focus and precision is blinding, although in some ways this is a more monothematic wine than the regular Heiligenstein. It’s hard to choose a favourite.
Muted nose, but generous palate, with salty apple and quince fruit and some buttery, toasty backnotes. A big, ripe style for Gobelsburg, but of course this has been handled with panache and restraint, and retains considerable harmony and balance.
Flinty and reductive on the nose, with sculpted capsicum and green apple fruit. Great definition and a big slab of salty freshness on the finish. You need to be a Grüner fan, but if you are, this is great.
