I was introduced to it at the Slanted Door
Ah, the famous SD wine list strikes again. Must get back there, and hopefully next time with someone like Stuart or Hoke (or you!) around to make sure I get the royal treatment.
the Hiedler Gruner Veltliner Thal is one of the best/best value GruVees on the market for ageable, complex white wine.
Thanks for the confirmation. And you remind me to seek out more of the Hirsch--not the Veltliner #1 but something above that, priced around $17. We had it a few months ago with a Vietnames pho style dish topped with beef carpaccio and a spicy cabbage slaw seasoned with fish sauce. The match with the Hirsch was stunning. I know it was every bit as good as this Hiedler was, but I've not seen it around since.
