Subtle, slightly chalky nose with fresh and bright spiciness, crystal clear candied fruit aromas, red peaches, papayas and a touch of apricots, velvety and seductive; refreshing and energetic, full of succulent and juicy fruit, tropical aromas, grapey, appealing counterplay of acidity and sweetness, enjoyable with delicate finish.

Dedicated to my wife Sandra, who loves this bright and dainty Riesling style so much: light, juicy and full of finesse. A gem from our prized sandstone floors.
Harvested in mid-October 2015. Whole cluster pressing, fermentation with exclusively natural yeast, no temperature control. Matured in stainless steel tanks as well as large oak barrels. Stayed on the fine yeast until the end of April 2016. Bottled in May 2016. Will be sold not before September 2017.
THE 2015 VINTAGE
The distinctive characteristics of the single-vineyard sites are especially evident in the wines from the 2015 harvest. last year was a magnificent vintage, albeit one that demanded accuracy and diligence in the vineyard. meticulous canopy management and intuitive steps were required throug- hout each and every vineyard, to enable our typical Hirsch style to sing out. Our 2015 vintage wines are aromatic, juicy and full of freshness, despite the untypically warm year, and display depth of fruit spice. all wines carry the Hirsch-hallmark characters of intense fruit and a broad aromatic profile at a relatively low-alcohol content.
