Riesling Ried Heiligenstein Erste Lage, L. Hiedler

One of the most famed and best crus in Austria, the Heiligenstein vineyard is a unique geological formation within Europe; a geological island. The old vines grow on a complex sedimentary soil structure, on sandstone conglomerate with red arkoses and volcanic quartz porphyries. The narrow terraces yield a highly complex Riesling with a strong personality.
