Product Description

“The 2015 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Dürnsteiner Liebenberg comes from 70- to 80-year-old vines on a rare calcareous slate soil. The wine displays a very clear and pure, pretty open and lovely spicy, crystalline and flinty bouquet with ripe pip fruit aromas. Very distinguished and rather coolish in its expression. Full-bodied, round and elegant, with tension, salt and grip in the finish, this is a charmingly ripe and juicy but also challenging mineral and piquant Veltliner from one of the most exciting terroirs. The finish is powerful and complex but also fresh and stimulatingly piquant. Pichler has bottled this wine since 2010.” Wine Advocate 93-94 Points

“A site-typical oily richness of texture, combined with very ripe melons and musky scents of narcissus, conveys a decidedly decadent overall impression. There is a rich, earthy undertone of beet, while smoky and ashen notes lend welcome counterpoint on the clinging, faintly warm finish.” Vinous 90-91 Points
