APPELLATION: Wachau

VINEYARD: Franz Hirtzberger. Located in the most Western part of Wachau, Austria, this vineyard takes advantage of the cool winds and weather to produce extraordinary wines, full of spices and with exotic aromas. The vineyard has a total of 20 hectares, 45% of which are planted with Grüner Veltliner, 40% with Riesling, and the rest is divided between Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, and Chardonnay.

GRAPES: 100% Riesling.

PREPARATION: The grapes are handpicked and carefully selected to guarantee optimum quality and maturity of the fruit. The selected ones are processed in the cellar and undergo a controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks, and then left to natural standstill. Maturing takes place in large, traditional oak barrels. The end result is an elegant white, a remarkable exemplar with good and juicy acidity and great length.

PAIRING: Best served with pork, shellfish, spicy food, poultry, and cured meat.

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 10-12°C

ALCOHOL: 13%

4/5

In a tasting course we had the pleasure to try.
The typical colour of white. It smells a little like white flowers and lemon. I noticed the 2016 a little astringent.
I would recommend to pair it with gouda cheese.

Curious aromas of citrus. Light on the palate.
A different wine.
