2020 Weingut Hirsch Kammern Gruner Veltliner

2020 Weingut Hirsch Kammern Gruner Veltliner...$29.99 / 750ml
Wine & Spirits Magazine: 93 Points
Johannes Hirsch blends fruit from several of his first-class vineyard sites—including Lamm and Gaisberg—for this wine. The result in 2019 is opulent, a grĂ¼ner veltliner that’s lemon-bright and creamy. A leesy richness builds into the wine, adding texture without weight, so that it feels like a cloud in the mouth, if clouds were made of candied lemon peel, powdered rocks and meringue.
James Suckling: 92 Points
Sliced lemons and honey with some walnuts and stone. It’s medium-bodied with a pretty core of fruit and a walnut undertone at the end. Pineapple, too.
