This Federspiel Riesling is typified by extraordinarily spicy, almost exotic aromas of peach, citrus, mango and savoury complex mineral notes. Dry, rich and medium bodied on the palate, this stunning example suggests flavours of pear nectar, tangerine, slate and floral notes. Whilst a pleasure to drink now, this wine will further improve and develop for 10 years and beyond. A highly versatile wine to pair with food, this would work superbly well with a range of dishes ranging from light seafood through to bigger white meat and cheese dishes.£3.73 per 100.00ml
Indisputably considered one of Austria’s greatest producers, Franz Hirtzberger's tiny productions of excellent wines are always highly sought after. Situated in a 600 year old house in the famous Wachau region, Franz Hirtzberger is renowned for producing wines that combine great power and fruit focus along with pronounced minerality. Since he inherited the estate from his father in 1983, Franz has closely managed his vineyards, and employs a hands off approach with the stunning Rieslings and Gruner Veltliners he produces.
