ABOUT THIS WINE

In our terraces on the Zöbing Heiligenstein, Riesling vines are rooted in 270 year old Zöbing Perm rock, a unique geological formation of volcanic origin. Grapes harvested by hand have been transformed into wine with great care and aged in our 700-year-old natural cellar in large wooden barrels. The vines planted on meager terraces, produce a Riesling of a very special style. It reflects the unique terroir with exciting minerality and complex density. On the nose as well as on the palate this Riesling unfolds with precise fruit and mineral structure. A wine with great character and ageing potential.

Ried Zöbinger Heiligenstein

With its very rare geological formation, Ried Zöbinger Heiligenstein is one of the best Riesling sites in the winegrowing region. The Zöbing Perm is a meager, reddish and weathered desert sandstone with conglomerates of volcanic components from the Permian period (270 million years old). The vineyards are located in a nature protection area. Between the vineyards there are preserved dry grassland areas with rare flora and fauna.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

The Jurtschitsch winery, situated in Langenlois, is one of the most prestigious wineries in Austria which impeccably displays Austrian wine culture at its best.

Alwin and Stefanie Jurtschitsch having been leading the family estate for some time now and have managed to reinterpret premium wine in their own way. For the two of them this means vinifying authentic, complex and terroir-specific wines with cool, elegant stylistics - in other words, permitting the different appellations in Langenlois to express themselves individually. The new parameters, which are in fact based on long-standing traditions form the origin for this: biological farming, healthy soils, minimal interventions in the cellar and specifically experimenting to keep on top of the endless riches hidden away in the wine world.
