Franz Hirtzberger is one of the greatest names in the Wachau for producing top quality Riesling and Gruner Veltliner. His vines are located at the coldest end of the appellation, which was particularly touched by frost in 2016, resulting in tiny yields. What a shame, as this 2016 Riesling Steinterrassen Federspiel is glorious. Pale lemon-gold colour, aromas are beautiful, recalling freshly squeezed limes, honeysuckle and lemon blossom – very complex and expressive. The palate is full bodied, rich, well-structured and powerful. This is an intense wine with a savoury, mineral spine, citrussy tang and a lifted, long-flavoured finish. For an elegant, dry, gastronomic style of Riesling, look no further.
