A gently complex Gruner from the grape's homeland, Austria. Hiedler's basic estate wine used to be called 'Spiegel', but has been split into alternative expressions Langenlois (imported last vintage) and this one called Löss -- which means Loess in English and refers to the richer sediment soils on which it was grown. Another beautiful Hiedler that shows why Gruner is weirldy like great Burgundy, but cheaper. Superb with or without white meats, and serious value!

Overview

Grape

Gruner Veltliner

Its Origins

From 35 hectares of Erste Lage (Grand Cru) holdings in the Kamptal, the Hiedler family has been producing wine in Langelois since the mid-18th century. Starting in 1980, Ludwig and María Angeles Hiedler have led operations, while their son Ludwig Jr. finishes his winemaking studies and practicum at Von Volxem. Hiedler’s holdings are in the best vineyards in the Kamptal, with Riesling parcels in the Heiligenstein and Gaisberg, and Grüner Veltliner in the deep loess vineyards that rest at the base of those mountains: Lamm, Grub, and Renner. Hiedler’s other sites in the area include a ‘Grand Cru’ monopole, Thal, Spiegel, Steinhaus, and Loiserberg. In addition to Grüner Veltliner and Riesling, the Hiedlers work with Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), the first plantings of which were planted by Ludwig’s father in the Schenkenbickl, a ‘Grand Cru’ plot just below the Käferberg. All organic/natural practices. Notably, malolactic fermentation is never blocked but allowed to occur naturally, allowing Hiedler a quite broad and unique dimension of texture and weight; a distinctive approach to both Grüner Veltliner and Riesling from this region.
