Gruner Veltliner Federspiel, Mathias Hirtzberger, Wachau, Austria 2018
Regular price £34.40
Mathias Hirtzberger had a brief career in banking before finding himself drawn back home to the Wachau. His brother Franz is now well established at the famous Franz Hirtzberger estate in Spitz, and wine production seemed more attractive than the world of corporate finance.
By happy chance, some family vineyards farmed by another (retiring) Hirtzberger became available at Wösendorf in 2014, and Mathias jumped at the chance to create his own domaine. More vines from another property in the village also became available to rent at the same time, so he now has 9 hectare estate.
Since then, Mathias has cultivated a reputation for producing Gruner Veltliner of the highest quality – showcasing the elegance and gastronomic-pairing ability that this variety has to offer.
