WEINGUT EICHINGER

Birgit Eichinger’s goals are clear – to optimise the natural aroma and flavour potential inherent in the grapes by matching varietals and terrain, practicing careful vineyard management and applying painstaking vinification. Having begun her winemaking career experimenting with 3.5 hectares from her parents’ business in the Kamptal region of Austria, it didn’t take long for Birgit to build on this success and establish a winery of her own in 1992. Standing at the foot of the Gaisberg mountain, the winery is ultramodern and vinification takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with the emphasis being placed on the purity of...

TASTING NOTES

The geological elements of the soil in this site, makes Lamm unique and guarantees expressive, elegant Grüner Veltliner. The almost velvety nose of subtle sweet spice and profound yellow fruit aromas combines with a smokiness reminiscent of bees wax. The palate offers texture, transparent and balanced honey melon flavours and just a touch of residual sugar. The finish is long,...

TASTING NOTES

Thanks to the diversity of this site’s soil, with its ruddy weathered desert sandstone combining with volcanic compounds, the Heiligenstein produces a classically pure expression of Riesling. The flora and fauna that thrives in between the vines is usually found in far more southern Mediterranean areas.

The Gaisberg vineyard is considered one of the best of the entire region owing to its South Easterly exposure. On the nose this starts out with a wave of citrus that becomes increasingly impressive with marzipan and peach. The wine’s voluminous body rapidly releases the fruit, the residual sugar perfectly offsetting its acidity. With an attractively lingering aftertaste, the wine...

TASTING NOTES

Light straw-yellow; there is a bunch of spices on the nose, with underlying yellow fruit aromas, delicate white pepper; the appley flavors are wrapped in a spicy veil. This succulent and mouthfilling offering glides really easily across the palate, with a nice echo. Good value for money. A perfect match with seafood and summer salads.

TASTING NOTES

Pointed, precise and spicy are the key words for the Heiligenstein Riesling in 2012. Eichinger consistently makes superb Riesling but this is a triumph. Apricots, peaches, citrus and almond compile an extremely complex palate with a decidedly white pepper spice finish. Excellent structure and rapier-like acidity makes this at once refreshing and age-worthy.

With every vintage, Birgit never fails to astound us with the exceptional quality of her wines. Highly expressive, elegant and with wonderful purity, we have had the pleasure of marvelling at these stunning wines for the last eight years that we have been working with Weingut Eichinger.

Birgit established a winery of her own situated on a superb spot at the foot of the Gaisberg Mountain in 1992 having spent time experimenting on 3.5 hectares of her parents’ land in the Kamptal. Her reputation as a talented viticulturalist and oenologist has continued to grow, and she has become mentor and friend to many up-andcoming female winemakers who still take their lead from her. Vital to her work is maintaining the purity of the must prior to fermentation, while slightly warmer fermentations add texture to the body of the wine which complements her painstaking work in the 9 hectares of vineyards in some of the best traditional sites in Strasse.
