From the producer: The vineyard site is located on the south-eastern slope toe of the Heiligenstein mountain, and is one of the warmest sites in this wine-growing region. The soil, which is calcareous and loamy, has derived from the underlying loess. In the higher parts of the vineyard, towards the Heiligenstein mountain, siltstones and sandstones of the Zöbing Formation, which contain little or no lime, reach close to the surface.

One reason that Weingut Hirsch's wines are so good is that Johannes Hirsch did a lot of things first. He was one of the first in Austria to dump Chardonnay and really focus on Kamptal's great varieties of Riesling and Grüner Veltliner. He was one of the first to farm biodynamically. He was first to switch all closures to stelvin. So he's had a longer time to perfect this style of hyper-artisanal winemaking than virtually anyone else in Austria.

There were hiccups along the way. Not everyone loved the Rieslings from the late aughts that ended up with some residual sugar. But it turns out that this was just what nature wanted to do in those vintages. And since then, Hirsch (and nature) have made nothing but classical, dry Grüners and Rieslings. He has avoided the trend towards higher octane Austrian wines that we have seen elsewhere. With lower alcohol levels, Hirsch shows the pure, crystalline essence of Austrian Grüners and Rieslings.
