Hirsch Ried Gaisberg 1 ÖTW Kamptal DAC Riesling

Many Kamptal aficionados see the Gaisberg as something of a ‘little brother’ to the famous Heiligenstein. However, this assessment does not do justice to the potential of the vineyard. Weathered mica schist covered with brown earth provides a nearly perfect soil for growing mineral-driven Rieslings. Situated near the village of Strass, the Gaisberg is the south-easternmost foothill of the Manhartsberg, still manifesting the crystalline material of the Bohemian Massif. The grapes for this wine are grown on terraces and come from vines that are some forty years of age.

"The perfume of tangerine, lemon and blood orange zest on the nose is startlingly aromatic even though it is still tinged with some yeasty funk. That vivid display of citrus richness contrasts with the stony concentration of the steely palate. This is taut and tight, streamlined and vivid, yet dripping with ripe, mellow juiciness. Drink by 2050"

"This great dry riesling still shows some funk (from wild ferment), but behind this is a wine with great depth and a very complex structure. With aeration the subtle stone-fruit and spice aromas slowly emerge. Amazing finish that shoots off into the heavens. From organically grown grapes. Better after 2020. Screw cap."
