Hirtzberger Singerriedel Riesling Smaragd 2017
Weingut Franz Hirtzberger is a fifth-generation estate in the historic region of Wachau and is a specialist in premium single-vineyard Riesling. Singerriedel is one of the finest vineyards in the region, rising steeply from just behind the winery with its traditional stone terraces and is a highly complex site that produces rich and powerful wines. The 2017 is ripe, concentrated and intensely mineral, with excellent phenolic structure and a faintly saline undercurrent. A wine of fantastic ageing potential, this is perhaps best approached after a few more years cellaring.
