2011 Hirsch Heiligenstein Grüner Veltliner Kamptal
This rich version is full of ripe peach, apple compote and pear flavors, with notes of golden raisin and custard. Allspice and nutmeg accents show on the finish, revealing some savory herbal elements. Drink now through 2017. (Web-2013)
91 points Richard Jennings: "Light green-tinged yellow color; aromatic, celery seed, mineral nose; tasty, celery seed, mineral palate with medium acidity; medium-plus finish." (RJonWine.com, 1/24/2013) And from the winery's note: "A showcase wine for Austria's classic white grape variety that comes from the loess and loam soils typical of the lower parts of the Heiligenstein vineyard which belongs to the village of Kammern. Fragrances of sweet vegetables and fruits mingle with elegant spice aromas; this wine is equally supple, substantial and satisfying."
