Heiligenstein is the top site for Riesling in the Kamptal, and one of the best sites in Austria over all. The wines from this broad, steep, terraced, south facing hill show the unique minerality of one of a kind site. This hill was once a mountain composed of  desert sandstone with volcanic and carboniferous conglomerates, and the only one left of its kind in Europe. Jurtschitsch is one of a trifecta of artists crafting perfect wines from the Kamptal, especially this powerful, concentrated, yet surprisingly lithe bottle of dry Riesling from an extraordinary vintage.

Vanguards of the natural wine scene in the Kamptal, an Austrian region known for elegant and aromatic wines. The young couple, Alwin and Stef (a daughter of the Gunderloch family in Germany) took over his family estate, the oldest in the Kamptal in 2006. They’ve converted everything to organics and gone further than that, using alternatives to copper sulfates for sprays and protecting the biodiversity of the forests around them.

All of that would be for naught if they didn’t also produce some of the most elegant, traditionally-classical wines in the region. Rieslings especially are high acid, elegant and aromatic and still so fairly priced.

What importer Bowler Wine has to say about this wine...

Heiligenstein, the most famous vineyard in the Kamptal, is legendary for Riesling. The terraced south and southwest facing slope has a unique geological history and it's unusual that soil this old is at the surface of the earth. The outcropping bedrock consists of a reddish-brown sandstone with a high feldspar content, coarse conglomerates, and minor siltstone. These sediments formed approximately 250-280 million years ago under arid conditions, in lakes, ponds, and ephemeral rivers. The rocks contain fossilized plants and gravel with clasts of volcanic rhyolite. Loess is only preserved in a few locations, within shallow depressions. Grapes that have achieved perfect ripeness and are botrytis-free are selected by hand and brought to the winery in small crates.
