The wines of the iconic Hirtzberger estate in the Wachau are recognized as some of the greatest in Austria. They stand on the same hallowed ground as Nikolaihof and Emmerich Knoll, but they hail from the cooler, Western Wachau village of Spitz. The style here is exceptionally spice-driven and exotic. While in Burgundy we cannot even begin to have the greatest wines in the region at these prices, Austria offers a wealth of value. The Hönivogl is the estate's most revered 'grand cru' site, the wines exhibit an especially honest transparency of site and typicity that drives us mad with adoration. Hirtzberger will incorporate botrytized fruit into their high-end single vineyards, which adds an extra layer of complexity and lavish-ness to the style. The fruit for Hönivogl comes from the bottom of the Singerriedel and Rotes Tor sites in Spitz, and this is one of Austria's most opulent and celebrated Grüner Veltliners. If you ever wondered what Grüner Veltliner tasted like if you turned its flavor volume knob to 11, this is a kaleidoscope of character in the glass.
