Sip Like a Somm

2002 Hirsch Riesling “Gaisberg” Kamptal Austria

I’ve often joked the way you spell sommelier is RIESLING, and that will always be true.

The 2002 vintage is one of my favorites from Johannes. With white peach, yellow apple, subtle spices, and a tantalizing layer of still fresh and zingy acidity, this is a Grand Cru that can easily last another 15 years. Don’t be afraid that Rieslings are too sweet, because they can bone dry and ethereal!
