Reserve Heiligenstein Erste Lage Riesling 2019

Surprising amount of tropical fruit aromas. Really quite delicious and not too young with some time in the glass. Wonderful depth and mouthfeel and excellent excellent crispy acid. Hint of off dry. Really a very nice wine. — 13 hours ago

Roter Veltliner 2018

Intriguing as was described by a local wine merchant as not attracting enough American drinkers so importers were dropping from their portfolios. I can see why: it’s subtle, with green tones to wildflower, avocado pit, and unripe white peach. A broad minerality on the palate with good intensity. The best analogy is that it’s relationship to Gruner Veltliner is like Aligote to Burgundy Chardonnay— a lesser cousin, but still delicious in its own way when made right, which this is. I would revisit, especially since under 20$. — 17 days ago

I would agree with the analogy. I’m not a fan of either variety, however.

I saw it as well - but stopped short of buying the varietal.

What a thoughtful comment

Franz Hirtzberger

Hochrain Smaragd Riesling 2001

If you could guess this white wine was 20yo i would be highly impressed
Colour is still pale to gold
On the light spectrum of the SMARAGD(😉) category, being only 13% in alcohol
It has a ripe pear, nectarine
Then moves to hints of marzipan and hay
But what it stands out is the mineral
Chalk and wet stones are extremely pronounced on the nose and on the palate
It drinks still extremely young and i am sure it will flesh out in the future i reckon
Long and too easy to go down
I had another bottle of this wine perhaps 5 or 6 years ago and i think this looked younger and with more potential than that, but i will go and cross check what i am saying now.
Few things i figure out from tonight bottle:
Firstly Hirtzberger IS my favourite producer in Wachau, then that Spitzer is surely a fresher subclimate than, for example, Dursteiner and lastly that light Smaragd and Federspiel are more my cup of tea rather than huge 14-15% smaragd(and in saying that i dont deny the bigger potential of the latter, i just enjoy more the former). Ok, i got it down for future reference so that i can't forget.

Sandgrube 13 Edition Chremisa Grüner Veltliner

Our 2019 edition had Chremisa in large letters on the bottle and it was fabulous. It was different than any Gruner we’ve had. — a month ago


Hefeabzug Wachau Grüner Veltliner 2018

Such a classic & so full of grunerosity: canned green beans, butter lettuce and loads of lime on the nose. On the palate, more of the same, plus some underripe tropical fruit and a pleasant hint of citrus pith. It’s the texture that gets me on this wine—almost inappropriately supple. Opened last night but think it’s drinking even better on day 2.
