Rudi Pichler, Jr. took over the family estate in 1997 and since then has convincingly demonstrated that he belongs in the top rank of Wachau winegrowers. Pichler rejected enological school, and opted instead for hands-on training. He furthered his education by tasting wines from around the world: "I learned winemaking by winetasting," Pichler says. He is one of the few producers in the Wachau who favors macerating his white wine grapes with the skins. He believes it increases the expression of terroir and brings better structure and harmony to the wine. Pichler is fanatic about making wines that express terroir. "For me, the highest aim is to get the earth in the bottle," he says. Valley and hillside sites as well as high-lying terraces mark the aroma-spice complexity of this wine, which offers pure, sophisticated drinking pleasure.

Winemaker's Notes:

Pale straw yellow in color with green highlights. Intense apricot and yellow plum on the nose and palate lead to a medium-bodied structure with racy acidity and a lively lemony finish.
