User Reviews for Hirtzberger Riesling Smaragd Hochrain

Winemaker's Notes:

"F.X. Pichler and Franz Hirtzberger are the pillars of the Wachau, literally and figuratively. They are the geographic pillars, representing the two ends: Loiben and Spitz. They are the stylistic pillars - the richness of the warmer eastern end, compared to the minerality and purity of the cooler western end of the Wachau. And they are the qualitative pillars - by the consensus of most the two greatest producers of the Wachau, indeed of dry whites in Austria."<br/><br/> "Hochrain is located just below Singerriedel. The soil type is dominated by a weathered rock overlaid with a fine layer of sandy loam. This particular terroir produces a Riesling with intense minerality, and flavour of stone fruits." -Winery
