Lesley scored this wine: 95/100
A Riesling from Heiligenstein is like a Chardonnay from Montrachet, a pure expression of terroir. In other words it's like the Harvard of the wine world, some amazing wines have graduated from this site in the Kamptal of Austria. This Grand Cru (Erste Lage) Riesling from winery Jurtschitsch is a graduate with incredible potential. Notes of lime mingle amongst scents of river rocks and minerals. A bone dry wine with incredible elegance, soft yet mouth watering. Clean and crisp with a finish that is so delicious inevitably your eyes close as you try to fully appreciate the prize in your mouth. Enhance the Ivy league experience by pairing this wine with fresh shellfish, oysters are my favourite but this wine can work with clams, mussels, or all the above.
