Named after the lyre method of training vines, which Willi Brundlmayer uses on the Heiligenstein vineyard to open out the vine's canopy, this is a full-bodied, many-layered wine, with pink grapefruit, quince and apricot flavors. Like other Rieslings from Heiligenstein, this will certainly age almost indefinitely.
