    Default [TN] Hirsch GV

    Tonight marked the arrival of fresh, wild-caught salmon back in our
    local fishmonger's. With a wood-grilled filet of Copper River Sockeye,
    I opened:

    2008 Hirsch Grüner Veltliner Heiligenstein (Kamptal)
    nose: green/herbal, honey, stone fruit
    palate: moderate acidity, rich, long finish

    Initially, this wine was a bit reticent, but upon warming it was
    transformed into one of the finest GVs I've had in quite a while. I had
    bought this on the presumption that it would have Federspiel-like
    weight, but in fact it came across more as the equivalent of a Smaragd.
    Regardless, it was lovely and went splendidly with the salmon.

    Correction: it was the '09. I somehow entered it wrong in Cellartracker.

    I thought that the alcohol was something like 13% or more -
    but finally I see that it's 12.5, so I can follow your
    thoughts.
