Brundlmayer Riesling Heiligenstein Lyra 2019


Faint notes of ripe Mirabelle come with a notions of crushed lemon leaf while a certain citrus headiness makes its way to the pleasure centre of the brain. The palate is bundled and compact, offering continuous bursts of citrus freshness. The effect is both exciting and cooling, invigorating and calming. Drink by 2050. 98 points. Anne Krebiehl MW, Wine Enthusiast March 2021

About 20% of our Heiligenstein vineyards are trained in a Lyre trellis system. The vine bifurcates in a way that the branches seem to reach to the heavens like sun-worshippers. This method doubles canopy exposure and favours aeration which improves photosynthesis and prevents dreaded fungus diseases. Yields are restricted by rigorous thinning and although harvest started late only healthy berries without botrytis were brought in. These techniques result in increasing the quality of grapes to show a similar intensity as those deriving from old vines. We ferment the must in stainless steel at a temperature of 15 to 20° C. After fermentation the wine matures on the lees till bottling in summer. Alcohol 13%; RS dry; acidity 7.3g/L. A deep fragrance of passion fruit, yuzu citrus and peppermint radiates freshness and vitality and yet immediately drives deep. Highly elegant and distinguished, full of fruit charm and esprit, fills the mouth with bright aromas. Focused and complex all the way into the long finish. Extraordinary ageing potential. – Weingut Bründlmayer
