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.

Reviews & Scores

Vibrant, bright, subtle style. Spice and lime character and finish. Ripe style. Very appealing.

This elegant wine boasts rich aromas of honey and peaches, along with a distinctive salty-savory note, which is a proper expression of our vineyards and terroir. The palate is fresh and lively...
