Winemaker Notes

The 2018 Weingut Hirsch Kammern Gruner Veltliner opens with a subtle, soft fragrance characterized by delicate aromas of yellow fruit and citrus notes. Crisp and fruit-driven on the palate with enticing apple and quince characters. Medium-bodied structure with pleasant freshness and vitality, hints of spice on the lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

JS 92
James Suckling

Saffron and other savory aromas with fresh white peaches and pears below. This has a neatly focused palate with fresh and quite concentrated fruit flavor on offer. Good weight and richness. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink now. Screw cap.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

Notes of freshly cut green pear are open and appetizing on the nose. The palate is sunny, easy and friendly, with more pear, now laced with some ripe lemon freshness. Toward the dry finish there is a little pith for added structure.

Weingut Hirsch Winery Video
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 calls Austria its homeland. While some easily quaffable Grüners come in a one-liter—a convenient size—many high caliber single vineyard bottlings can benefit from cellar aging. 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.
