Franz Hirtzberger Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Rotes Tor Austria Weinland Niederosterreich Wachau White 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Helles Grüngelb, in der Nase sehr feines Steinobstbukett, zarter Blütenhonig, grüner Apfel. Am Gaumen stoffig, zarte pfeffrige Würze, harmonisch, klingt lange nach, sehr klar strukturiert, sehr vielseitiger Speisenbegleiter.

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
