Considered to be one of the best white wine-producing estates in the country, Hirsch's single vineyard wines are highly coveted and made in tiny quantities. This particular expression hails from the 'Gaisberg' vineyard. Here, weathered mica schist is covered with brown earth, providing a nearly perfect soil for growing mineral-driven Rieslings. A distinctive single vineyard wine – aromatic, juicy, and full of freshness.
'Gigantic concentration of crushed-stone character, but also incredibly beautiful fruit that exactly counterbalances the mineral acidity that drives the diamond-bright finish. ...' - James Suckling
What a breathtaking nose this great dry riesling has, a cornucopia of stone fruit and wild herbs cascading from the glass. Gigantic concentration of crushed-stone character, but also incredibly beautiful fruit that exactly counterbalances the mineral acidity that drives the diamond-bright finish. From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
Nuanced fruit aromas marked with a soft, herbal spice and a nearly invisible smoke. The taut palate moves in alternating waves of fruit, spring flowers and stone. Captivating citrus elevation and textured grip. Expressive, elegant and far from finished
The Hirsch family are dedicated to the production of elegant Grüner Veltliner and Riesling from some of the best vineyard sites in the Kamptal region: Lamm, Renner, Grub, Gaisberg and the legendary Heiligenstein. Proud proponents of biodynamics and a founding member of respekt, their viticultural approach is characterised by an understanding and love for nature that results in wines that reflect the vitality of the region they are crafted from.
Considered one of the best white wine producing estates in Austria, all their wines carry the hallmark characters of intense fruit and a broad aromatic profile at a modest alcohol content.
