Ried Heiligenstein „M“
Riesling Heiligenstein newly interpreted! Maximilian, who already had the pleasure of practising in top international wineries during his training, uses a method for the vinification of his Heiligenstein “M” in which some of the berries are fermented together with the wine for a few weeks. The fine Riesling fruit thus comes even more to the fore and reveals the full potential of the grape variety.
The Riesling grapes are harvested at the end of October, and the picked material is subject to a strict selection process through several stages of harvesting. Only physiologically ripe and healthy grapes are further processed. A small portion of the berries are fermented together with the must. After cool fermentation at 18° C, the wine remains on the lees for another 10 months before being bottled.
stone fruit dominates, delicate minerality, light pineapple fruit, some orange zest, well-integrated acidity, lush and savoury in the finish. Balanced complexity.
