Riesling Smaragd Setzberg Franz Hirtzberger 2014

External Review:

Classic Wachau, and classic Hirtzberger, this manages to pack each sip full of peach and peach pit flavor while retaining the transparency that’s a hallmark of the Wachau’s best wines. While full-bodied and rich, there’s nothing showy about it; it has the ease and clarity of a babbling brook, and a similar sense of minerality.

Peach and apricot plus a pleasant spicy touch of anise on the nose. Powerful and firm on the palate, with a refreshing acidic backbone highlighting the yellow stone fruit flavors and bringing shape to the texture. Minerals and a hint of ginger linger impressively on the finish. Setzberg always brings the best results in warmer vintages.

Redolent of stone fruits and full of sandy loess, this is just beginning to show signs of maturity.
