Winemaker Notes

Wonderful aroma, pure vetiver; as primordial as spring-water, rich and densely textured, a lovely complex wine that’s almost fluffy; a swirl of infinitely fine pieces of flavor, all seen from the corner of your palate’s eye, and snuggling beneath a virtually tactile blanket of texture and mineral richness

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 94
Vinous
A captivating nose mingles cooling basil and spearmint with piquant fruit pit and smoky hints of Latakia tobacco. On the silken palate, bright, luscious, Riesling-like white peach, mirabelle and lime pick up peppery and mustard-seed-like invigoration, parsnip pungency and beet earthiness. All of the aforementioned follow – along with chalky suffusion, algae- and brine-rich oyster liquor and lobster-shell-like sweet-saline savor – on a prodigious finish that set my salivary glands palpitating

Weingut Hirsch Winery Image
Regarded as one of the young, leading winemakers in Austria, Johannes Hirsch combines the quality of his renowned vineyards, dedication to viticulture and precise winemaking to craft wines of the highest class. Johannes works exclusively with Grüner Veltliner and Riesling, bottling most of his cuvees as single site, single terroir wines.

Hirsch takes full advantage of the distinct terroirs found in the Lamm, Gaisberg and Heiligenstein vineyards. Johannes farms his vineyards sustainably and biodynamically and is certified by RESPEKT! Natural efforts have been made to ensure physiologically ripe grapes including high density planting, low trellising, canopy management and handpicking.

Climbing north and slightly east of the Kremstal region, Kamptal has very little vineyard area bordering the Danube River (unlike Wachau and Kremstal, whose vineyards run along it). The region takes its name from the river called Kamp, which traverses it north and south. Kamptal’s densely planted vineyards represent eight percent of Austria’s total.

The area experiences wide diurnal temperature variations like the Wachau but with less rain and more frost. Its vast geologic diversity makes it suitable for various experimentations with other varieties besides Grüner Veltliner and Riesling, such as Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc (Weissburgunder), Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, St. Laurent and Zweigelt.

But the region is probably most noted for the beautiful and expansive terraced Heiligenstein, arguably one of the world’s top Riesling sites, as well as some of Austria’s most extraordinary Grüner Veltliner vineyards. Kamptal’s soils, which are mostly loess and sand with some gravel and rocks, make it suitable for Grüner Veltliner, so much so that actually half of the zone is planted to that grape.

Fun to say and delightfully easy to drink, Grüner Veltliner is indigenous to Austria, where it has long maintained its status as the nation’s most important and most planted white grape. Somm Secret—About 75% of the world’s Grüner Veltliner comes from Austria but the variety is gaining ground in other countries, namely Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and the United States.
