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.
Score: IWC Silver 2014

TASTING NOTES

The Bourgogne Blanc, which had completed its malo by springtime, is already in bottle and offers good fruit weight and mid-palate density but plenty of freshness too. The nose is pure and floral and the wine bounds along energetically, with a crisp, well-defined finish suggesting versatility, equally at home on its own as with simple foods. Drink from 2014.

TASTING NOTES

A blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat giving a fresh and aromatic wine with plenty of citrus flavours and peachy, floral hints. The Chardonnay gives a great rounded, creamy texture which lends the wine to pairing with creamy cheese.
