I approached the Hirtzbeger 2007 Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Honivogl with the worry "too much of a good thing?" Yet, while exotically ripe, this displays a Riesling-like primary fruit energy and interplay of pit fruits, citrus, and diverse mineral elements. Snap peas, yellow beets, blond tobacco, and mango drizzled with honey, malt, and grapefruit inform a creamy palate that is remarkably transparent to stony, saline, savory, and shellfish-like nuances. Polished, proportional, and free of any but positive, glyceral consequences of its 14.5% alcohol, this beauty should be worth following for at least 7-9 years. RP


Winemaker's Notes:

Probably the most famous Gruner of them all, from the site with the mostevocative name. Honivogl is a small but perfectly located 0.4 hectare plot; thewine has green apples and capiscum on the nose and an extraordinary palatedominated by apricot, smoke and white pepper. (Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
