Hirtzberger Riesling Smaragd Hochrain 2011

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

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
