The ancient tanning town of Langenlois close to the Danube, has been the home of the Hiedlers since 1853. The current generation is made up of Ludwig and his charming Spanish wife Maria-Angeles, whose wines combine Teutonic rigour and Mediterranean artistry to great effect. Their winery is now one of the leading names in Kamptal, their wines perfectly expressing all that is great about Austrian wine. They are equally at home with Riesling and Grüner Veltliner and have built an enviable reputation for expertise with both varieties.

Hiedler's 2012 Riesling Gaisberg is pithy and piquant and in a way that reminds me of the 2010, however different those two vintages might otherwise be. Surprisingly lean in texture for a 2012, it penetrates and persists with grapefruit and orange rind, apple-pip, ginger, stone and alkali. Full yet rather austere, this generates interactive dynamic encompassing also floral and herbal essences, as such representing a formidable advance beyond the performances of its Steinhaus and Urgestein siblings. I'm anxious to witness how it evolves but would tentatively suggest planning on service through 2016, though I hope that projection proves conservative, even ridiculously so. Wine Advocate 90 (2012)
