If Knoll and F.X. Pichler are the two titans of the warmer eastern side of the Wachau, Hirtzberger is the pinnacle of the Western Wachau in the village of Spitz. When it comes to Wachau wines, as in Germany, they do many passes through the vineyard and multiple harvests at different ripeness levels, and these levels are reflected on the wine labels. For Austrian wines from the Wachau they use three terms: Steinfeder, Federspiel, and Smaragd. Steinfeder represents the most elegant, mineral-driven, and lightest styles of the Wachau, while Smaragd represents opulence, and usually some honeyed notes of the noble rot, Botrytis. Hirtzberger is one of my favorite producers out of the Wachau, and you rarely ever see any Steinfeder in the United States. It is mostly consumed locally. This is a hot weather treat.
