2007 Franz Hirtzberger Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Honivogel
Producer: Franz Hirtzberger
Style: White Wine
Grape Type: other white varietal
95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2008
($116) Medium green-yellow. Elegant blossom honey, pineapple, subtle tropical fruits, ripe apple and a whiff of tobacco on the complex nose. Elegant, juicy and nuanced in the mouth, with a fine acid structure lending firmness. Subtle flavors of apricot and peach along with cool wet minerals and peppery spices continue through the very long finish. This sweetly flavored dry wine is juicy and impressively concentrated, and possesses exceptional aging potential. Drink 2010 to 2022.
