2016 Hirsch Estate Grüner Veltliner Ried Renner Erste Lage Kamptal (Biodynamic)

SKU #1441437 94 points Vinous

 A captivating nose mingles cooling basil and spearmint with piquant fruit pit and smoky hints of Latakia tobacco. On the silken palate, bright, luscious, Riesling-like white peach, mirabelle and lime pick up peppery and mustard-seed-like invigoration, parsnip pungency and beet earthiness. All of the aforementioned follow – along with chalky suffusion, algae- and brine-rich oyster liquor and lobster-shell-like sweet-saline savor – on a prodigious finish that set my salivary glands palpitating.

93 points James Suckling

 A very young, but beautifully balanced and elegant grüner veltliner from Hirsch that has a long herbal-mineral finish. I love the lemony freshness of this wine. Better from 2018. Screw cap.  (10/2017)

93 points Wine Spectator

 Tremendously pure and focused, with notes of elderflower framing the core of apricot and grapefruit flavors, accented by anise and shaved ginger hints. This is built for aging and has all the elements that promise a fine development. Best from 2021 through 2028. (AZ, Web Only-2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Tasted as a bottled sample in August 2017, the straw-yellow 2016 Grüner Veltliner Ried Renner 1ÖTW opens with a clear and aromatically rather discreet bouquet of white and yellow-fleshed fruits intermixed with spicy/herbal (thyme!) notes and some yeasty and lemony aromas. On the palate, this is a very charming, elegant, vivacious, full-bodied and strong Grüner Veltliner from the bottom of the Gaisberg. It is well balanced and leads to an elegant, aromatic and stimulating finish. (SR)  (9/2017)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

 This leads with an impression of yeasty, funky richness. That lovely funkiness then turns to great concentration on the palate as leesy, salty savory notes combine with celery, sage and fern flavors. A pure lemon note is a lovely and fresh accent on the long, salty finish. (AK)  (3/2018)
