F.x. Pichler Riesling Smaragd Dürnsteiner Kellerberg 2009
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.
Hi, Was somewhat amused by the "overview". This wine produced some 100 km to the west of Vienna in Austria is simply not produced in Germany and should not be compared to German wines. I would hope it is much better. best, Anton
