2018 L. Hiedler Riesling Ried Heiligenstein Erste Lage

Austria | Riesling
"Beautiful, minerally aromas of crushed peppermint, dried citrus and candied orange peel. Medium-bodied and very sleek with punchy acidity, steely resolve and a graceful yet pithy finish. Drink now or hold."
- 95 Points, James Suckling


"A lovely herbal savor accompanies the vividly expressive nose of ripe Meyer lemon. The palate is juicy, and rounder and more generous than the nose suggests, but it also brings with it the tanginess of ripe citrus. This is fluid, dry, concentrated and juicy, swishing all those Mandarin orange and clementine notes across the tongue. The finish is vivid and pithy."

"Hiedler produced a stylish Riesling from Heiligenstein in 2018, but the Gaisberg Riesling shows more flair. The nose is subdued, with a smoky, dusty character and a light tropical-fruit tone. It's rich and suave but has good underlying acidity that gives tension and poise rather than power. Nonetheless it has punch and persistence. Drinking Window 2020 - 2030."
