TN: 2005 Hirtzberger GV


Betsy made grilled pork tenderloin with a pinto/corn/cilantro salsa
and spinach, wine was the 2005 Hirtzberger "Rotes Tor" Gruner
Veltliner Federspiel. Lovely GV, full bodied for Federspiel, holds up
well to the pork. Apples and yellow plums, a little peppery note, wet
rocks on the finish. Balanced acidity, good length. Drinking very
nicely right now. B+/A-
Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't
drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no
promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
