"From a terraced vineyard on loess, Hiedler's 2016 Langenlois Ried Thal 1ÖTW Grüner Veltliner is clear, fresh and slightly flinty on the nose that is remarkably well defined and precise. Full-bodied, piquant and elegant on the palate, this is a stunningly fresh, vital and finessed Grüner Veltliner from pure loess soils. It has a nice, stimulating grip and reveals a well structured, mineral finish. An impressive Thal! Tasted at the Loisium Hotel in Langenlois in July 2017."
"Don’t like sqeaky-clean, reductive wines? Step right up! Amazing values for chewy, ample wines with old-fashioned meat on ‘em. They are among the highlights in every vintage. Satisfying, is how they taste! Look, I adore those filigree delineated wines, you know I do, but after five days of tasting them it starts to feel like work. They demand study. With the first hit-o-Hiedler the palate sits up with a jolt: “Is there a party? Sure feels like it!” Yet within their succulent density is all the complexity you could wish for. They’re the thinking-man’s wine porno!" ~ Winery notes
Very unique wine. - We had this wine at a dinner as part of a wine pairing. It’s very floral, kind of like a dry Alsace Riesling combined with a Viogner.
