Product Information

In contrast to Hirtl’s more fruit-driven wine from the Kirchberg vineyard, this wine from their Waldberg terroir is leaner, chalkier and more dominated by classic Grüner ‘celery’ notes. The finish is stony, mineral-led and builds into delicate pepper-spice notes. Hugely accomplished and a great example of a classic, premium Austrian Grüner Veltliner.

  • The Masterminds

  • After 300 years of tradition in the Hirtl Winery, the estate was taken over by Andrea and Martin Hirtl in 2001. The pair have developed unique character and supreme quality from the cool climate region of Weinviertal. Ultimately, by selection at the harvest and long maturity of the yeast. From this, the Austrian winery has held the title of being a Weinviertel leading estate since 2012.

  • Waldberg Hill

  • On the Waldberg Hill, the Grüner Veltliner develops more body and density with an intensive nose of peach and spice on the palate. This is caused by the clay content in the loess soil and by facing south, high levels of maturity are possible. A position where the Weinviertel DAC Reserve grows. A title achieved in 2003 after Weinviertl was the first Austrian wine region to adopt the appellation DAC.
