Hirsch Riesling Heiligenstein 2003

Hirsch is an Austrian producer from the Kamptal region. This wine is a single vineyard Riesling from the heiligenstein (Holy stone) hill just above Kammern village, where the winery is located. This winery is one of my favorite Austrian producers due to its non interventionistic approach. The wines usually display very good balance between fruit, acidity & light mineralic backbone. They go very well with food.

Light golden colored, this wine has a very broad set of aromas: starting with peaches, tropical fruit and delicate lime this goes on to show flower blossom, minerals. This is balanced by the right amount of acidity and crispiness. Very nice finish.
