About the Wine:

Barbara Öhlzelt is turning the region’s paradigm completely on its head. Instead of the unctuous, powerful and masculine wines of the famous large estates, Barbara’s wines emphasize focus and a quiet, simmering intensity. They are fine, clearly delineated, precisely-etched renditions of Grüner Veltliner and Riesling with just as much depth and persistence as the big boys, but on a lighter, more refreshing frame. 

Heiligenstein is home to 25-year-old vines on sandstone with coarse conglomerates of minerals such as feldspar and siltstone. The rocks contain fossilized plants and gravels with volcanic rhyolites. Loess is only preserved in a few locations, within shallow depressions. This is generally a warmer site, yet Barbara is still able to preserve her trademark racy style, here with more structure and citrus. 

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Falstaff:
"Pale green yellow, silver reflections. Blossom honey and apricot touch, something of meadow herbs, tobacco savouriness, a breath of quince jelly. Good complexity, dark mineral, fine savoury, white stone fruit, pineapple in the echo, a good food companion with development and certain ageing potential." (Jun 2022)
