Hirsch 2014 Kammerner Grub Gruner Veltliner 750ml
"Here is one of those rare instances where I feel compelled within a year of publishing my initial note on a wine to re-review it on account of how much more impressive it was on re-tasting. The caramelized fennel and root vegetable richness noted in my earlier review are now joined by saline, alkaline and nutty notes and utterly mouthwatering evocations of oyster liquor and muscle broth. The finish remains infectiously juicy, blazingly bright, invigoratingly peppery and intriguingly stony and ashen. But it is that extra dimension of mollusk-like savor that captures both the imagination and the salivary glands. Tasted alongside in June 2016, the 2014 Renner (excuse my pun) gave this Lamm a good run for its money, but couldn't quite keep up."
