Hirsch Zobing Riesling 2013
100% Riesling. One of the pioneers of biodynamics in Austria, Johannes Hirsch is a trailblazer in the wine world. This Riesling from the Kamptal region, is bright, fresh, medium-dry with stone fruit and grapefruit on the palate. A nice, lengthy mineral finish makes this a killer wine.
"A gorgeous nose evokes saffron, moss, iris and lily-of-the-valley along with anticipations of the white peach and apple that then dominate a slightly waxy, palpably dense yet buoyant palate. Orange rind accents and the persistence of inner-mouth floral perfume add appeal, leading to a finish of infectious juiciness, delightful levity (at well under 12% alcohol) and seeming suffusion of crushed stone. Most of the truly astonishing values from this vintage involve Grüner Veltliner, but here’s a Riesling whose price/quality rapport wows. What’s more, its energetically interactive and refreshing appeal had not dimmed in the least on the occasion of a September 2105 retasting." - David Schildknecht
