The village of Zöbing is characterized by Riesling terraces.
Primary rock and permian soil are the fundament of the Zöbinger Riesling personality. The village got high recognition after the construction of the Heiligenstein Tower in the late 19th century.
AWARDS & TASTING NOTES
WINE ENTHUSIAST, rating 92
Pristine notions of tangerine hover gently above the glass. The palate is bright with that ripe citrus notion, amplified by gentle spritz on a slender, juicy, concentrated palate. A lovely dry Riesling with rounded, deeply aromatic freshness. Lovely.
WINE ADVOCATE/ ROBERT PARKER, rating 91
Sourced in the Kogelberg, Heiligenstein and Gaisberg, Moosbrugger’s 2018 Zöbing Riesling displays an intense and aromatic, well-concentrated and flinty bouquet with crystalline purity and lemony freshness. Tight and mineral on the palate, this is an expressive, well-structured and elegant Riesling with a fine phenol structure.
BLIND TASTED BY ANDREAS LARSSON: Rating 90
Bright light golden colour. Pure nose, fresh pineapple and yellow fruit with lime and citrus notes, very pure and fresh palate with good grip and length.
JAMESSUCKLING.COM: Rating 93
If this was marketed as being from the great Heiligenstein vineyard site in Zöbing, nobody would complain, because it has that level of sophistication. Tons of yellow fruit, plus melon and apple notes, this has remarkable texturally complexity for just 12,5 per cent alcohol and plenty of structure at the long finish. Drink or hold.

WINE ENTHUSIAST: Rating 92
Clean, slender poise and quiet citrus conviction give this wonderfully light wine its chief character. There is gentle but pure lemon freshness at the very core of this, radiating weightless brightness. This leaves you thoroughly refreshed. With its energy and drive this wine means that conversation will be enlivened rather than dampened.
