This wine is named Himmelstiege – ‘stairway to heaven’ – in recognition of the steepness of the vineyards from where the grapes are sourced. Why’s that important? It makes the vines work hard to find water and nutrients, and produces wine with a wonderful mineral intensity. This 2018 is from Domäne Wachau – a cellar established 300 years ago. In 2004, the winemaker Heinz Frischengrüber and winery manager Roman Horvath MW introduced a new regime and quality has since soared. Jancis Robinson MW named them as “one of the best co-ops in the world”. Their focus is the Wachau region, from where most of Austria’s finest wines hail. This fine Riesling has a bright zip of lime acidity to balance its ripe peach fruit. Tasty solo or with fish dishes.

"So clean, so refreshing – this is classy, pure fruit, dry Riesling from a class act in Austria" Kirsten Willis
