2008 Brundlmayer 'Heiligenstein Lyra' Riesling
Brundlmayer is arguably the top estate in all of Austria. From its vineyards situated around the village of Langenlois in the Kamptal region, Willi Brundlmayer fashions Rieslings and Gruner Veltliners of incredible elegance and concentration.
Heiligenstein is the jewel in the estate's crown. Situated on the remnants of an extinct volcano, it creates wines with rich minerality and flavours of passion fruit, yuzu and peppermint. It's a wine that exudes pure class and is able to be cellared for fifty years. Not that anyone would be able to wait that long. But 13 years isn't a bad start.
