“Possibly the most consistent elite producer in Kamptal, if not in all of Austria”, according to one of the most influential sommeliers in the world, Rajat Parr. The Hirsch house has been in Kammern for 500 years, and since 1878 the farm has been cultivated by the family, now in the 5th generation. Biodynamics here is taken very seriously by Johannes, and the style of the wines is one of sheer purity in the representation of some of the best crus in the country, such as the fabulous Heiligenstein, with its primary rock, granite and gneiss soils. How far can Riesling and Grüner Veltliner go in Austria? The answer is Hirsch.

RESPEKT certified biodynamic. The terrace, facing south and southwest, has a unique geological history that has been preserved in this particular area. The outcrop of the bed consists of a reddish-brown sandstone with a high feldspar content, coarse conglomerates and small sediments. These sediments formed approximately 250-280 million years ago under arid conditions, in ephemeral lakes, ponds and rivers. The rocks contain fossilized plants and gravels with clichés from volcanic rhyolites. Loess is only preserved in a few places, within shallow depressions.

Harvest in October. Integral pressing, fermentation with natural yeasts only. Maturation taking place both in stainless steel tanks and in large oak barrels. The wine rested on its lees until mid-May before being bottled in late July and released in September 2021.

Jancis Robinson:  17.5+/20 points.
