Two generations of Hirtzbergers are currently involved with the family business based in the Wachau region of Austria. They have a small 12 hectare estate and are one of the most well known wine producers in Austria. The vineyards are set on particularly steep terraces above the Danube, so the work is very labour intensive. The quality of fruit is enhanced by exacting attention to detail, and care, from the vineyard team.
This is a rich, luscious style of Gruner. It's packed with apple, pear and floral notes, with a rich, silky long palate. It's a fantastic wine.
