An outstanding single-vineyard Riesling from Austria. Gaisberg is an important and historic Premier Cru (Erste Lage) vineyard, a cooler microclimate of steep terraces inflenced by an immensely complex array of metamorphic and crystalline rock formations, including plots on granite, marble, paragneiss, as well as calcerous loess and gravels. The result is a wine of dimension and delicacy, with developed ripeness layered by alluring minerality. A superb wine to decant now or cellar for some years. Stocks are low!

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.

What The Critics Say

93/100 Wine Enthusiast, Anne Krebiehl MW

"A lovely herbal savor accompanies the vividly expressive nose of ripe Meyer lemon. The palate is juicy, and rounder and more generous than the nose suggests, but it also brings with it the tanginess of ripe citrus. This is fluid, dry, concentrated and juicy, swishing all those Mandarin orange and clementine notes across the tongue. The finish is vivid and pithy."

17/20 JancisRobinson.com (2015 vintage)

"Steep, south-facing slope. Spiced depths and exotically perfumed. Creamy textured and honeyed richness on the palate. Excellent balance even with such richness. Ultra-spicy on the long, generous finish. (JH)." Drink 2018 - 2030
