More about

Hollerin is a south-facing single vineyard with granite soil.

A metaphorically cool and rather Muscat-like aroma of resinous herbs, elderflower, cassis and white peach is reflected on a firm, juicy palate with saliva-inducing salinity and a seemingly crystalline mineral interaction rendering the finish fascinating.

Look for this to be worth following and probably to gain in allure over the next 6-8 years.

The Alzingers didn’t begin harvesting until the third week of October in 2010 and continued until November 18th. Riesling Federspiel alone was de-acidified as must. Leo Alzinger senior confirmed the judgment of other Wachau veterans that there was no known precedent for the combination of high acidity, sugar and extract with genuine phenolic ripeness and next-to-no botrytis.
