F.x. Pichler Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Von Den Terrassen 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

There is an international consensus that this is the absolute model vineyard. This vertiginous, barren and purist primitive-rock terrace, which is south-easterly exposed and located at the exit of a side valley, creates a very special microclimate. The Kellerberg vineyard is already pampered by the sun early in the morning. During night, cool air streaming in from the bordering woods fosters the development of the complex texture and delicately nuanced, usually exotic aromas and flavors inherent in/typical of this wine. In fall, large temperature differences between day and night shape the grapes. Honey melon, mango, maracuja, banana and fully ripe peach, concise minerally notes as a dowry of the meager, weathered soil, and the extremely deeply rooting old vines make the wines of this site unparalleled and outstanding. We are fascinated about the wines from the Kellerberg due to their filigree elegance, which can hardly be expressed in words, This is our most noble wine, a true aristocrat.

a dream of a GV. The intensity of scents is amazing – ripe quince, spices, fresh green pepper (the first time ever that I found that in a GV – and I’ve tasted a lot … but “M” isn’t just some Grüner Veltliner --- just blew me over!) extremely full on the palate, very spicy at the back! A wine to meditate over … 14,5 %Vol., but just perfectly bound – gives the wine opulence and a great structure. Like to try that one again in five years!
