Hirtzberger-Gruner Veltliner-"Honivogl" Smaragd, Wachau-2012

Gruner Veltliner
"Honivogl" Smaragd, Wachau


“Honivogl Vineyard” is mostly rock, located at the base of the hill, running along The Danube. Small % of botrytis grapes included. Tank ferment, big neutral barrel aged. Very rich! High glycerine, more rich than sweet, mouth-coating, luscious. Honeyed apples, candied kumquats, apple butter, grapefruit. Drinks like a rich Chardonnay without the butter or oak. 

"Lime and lentil, apple and peach scent and flavor. at once creamily rich and infectiously juicy. Minerals, black tea, smoke...a lingering and complexly undulating finish that seems to consist of wave upon wave breaking over the threshold of your palate until you can no longer restrain the urge to take the next sip." David Schildknecht for The Wine Advocate. April 2014
