F.X. Pichler Wachau Grüner Veltliner Cuvée M Smaragd 2013

15,99900

Lucas Pichler’s monumental 2013 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd M opens with an ultra-ripe, concentrated and slightly speck-y yet still precise and even mineral-scented bouquet on the nose. Very rich and intense on the palate, this elegant, full-bodied, densely textured and powerful Veltliner from late-harvested grapes reveals an aromatic and juicy fruit core along with a stunningly vibrant acidity that gives structure, length and a lifting as well as lingering salinity and piquancy. Maracuya and other tropical fruit flavors dominate the aromatic aftertaste. Although I have no experience with matured samples of this Austrian icon Veltliner, I suspect it has an aging potential of 5-10 years and should be cellared at least for another 2 or 3 years.

Description

• Although there are producers now from Austria that have a high reputation for producing superb quality wines that represent this distinctive grape varietal, F.X. Pichler was and continues to be The icon and flag bearer for Austrian wines.
• The Wachau region from where they come is regarded as the greatest appellation of Austria and it is a region that has been mapped and is as precise as Burgundy.
