Tasting Notes

“Hiedler’s “top” wine—as far as they can push power, ripeness and concentration—has flirted with excess at times, but either this era is changing or the ’16 vintage held those things in check. It’s like a corn velouté with mirabelle schnapps, admirably salty; parsnip and cream and walnut; the very emblem of Hiedler. Gras, exotic, shellfish stock, and while it isn’t quite civilized it’s still aristocratic.” Terry Theise
