2018 F.X. Pichler Riesling Ried Kellerberg Smaragd (750ml)

Riesling from Wachau, Niederosterreich, Austria

2018 F.X. Pichler Riesling Ried Kellerberg Smaragd

A striking wine that has such intensity, length and complexity, yet somehow manages to deliver a very elegant, pure and focused style. Aromas of ripe stone fruit, white flowers, spice and freshly picked herbs lead to a palate that has a vivid stream of minerals, swathed in ripe peaches and mangoes and coursing through the finish. Impressive in every respect. Drink or hold.

A beautifully lifted note of kumquat and Mandarin orange sets an aromatic citrus focus on the nose. This is borne out immediately on the palate that seems to drip with zesty Mandarin orange and edgier tangerine. This tingles like pared citrus peel, emanating freshness and aroma around a central seam of freshness and utter concentration. There is an underlying compactness, something very solid, driven and totally alive at its very core. You have no choice but to submit to this citric drive. Wow. Drink 2025–2045.
