F. X. Pichler Grüner Veltliner Loibner Steinertal Smaragd 2015, 0.75L

Region: Wachau, Niederösterreich Austria
Varietal: Grüner Veltliner
Score: 93-95FM
Review: "Bright yellow-green, silver highlights. A touch of fresh orange zest, yellow apple, delicate mango, and nuances of fresh meadow herbs. Juicy, with good complexity, creamy texture, finesse, and acidity; elegant and persistent, with minerality reverberating in the finish."

Staff Notes:

“Fermented in tank and then aged in cask, whence I last tasted it, this projects a relatively soft profile, with ripe Bartlett pear and honeydew melon lusciously dominating. But welcome counterpoint arrives in the form of varietally typical crunch of snap pea, site-typically peppery pungency and stony impingement, and a glowing piquancy of fruit seed on the impressively sustained finish. Among the current collection’s Grüner Veltliner bottlings, this one preserves noteworthy juiciness and balances richness with tension and invigoration.”  Vinous 92-93 Points

“The 2015 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Loibner Steinertal is a medium to full-bodied wine with a very nice and mineral acidity and a refreshing bright fruit flavor. Tightly woven but very elegant and with grip. Very promising.” Wine Advocate 91-92 Points
