F.X. Pichler Grüner Veltliner Durnsteiner 2021

Wachau, Niederösterreich, Weinland Österreich, AustriaFounded in Oberloiben in 1898, the Pichler estate has developed a reputation as a Grüner Veltliner specialist since Franz Pichler Sr began selecting his own clones in 1928. His grandson son Lucas joined the winery team in 1996, taking over winemaking at the estate in 1999 and assuming management of the whole estate in 2009. Lucas manages the winery together with his wife Johanna, representing the 5th generation to farm these lands. This wine comes predominantly from younger organically farmed terraced mountain vineyard plots around the village of Dürnstein. This sleek GV streams meadow grass, green apple, crushed stone across a textural frame, with ample buzzy energy through a saline finish. Very smart, drinking beautifully now.Tasted: 10 September 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
