TASTING NOTES
The notation “In der Wand” is going back to a donation of the parish of Dürnstein in the year 1314 and describes three parcels in the site of so called Kummersthal, situated west of Dürnstein, but is not registered as single vineyard. Accessible only on foot via some 100 stone steps this handworked steep sloped terraced site is unique and yields extreme temperature differences between day and night caused by its western orientation. This facts combined with a high amount of Orthogneiss and the shallow topsoil allows this site to yield extremely minerally and long-lasting wines. Awfully focused and mineral with lots of stone fruit aromas and a sublime length – since 2017 they work organic here. The 2018 Riesling In der Wand is bright, fresh and clear on the precise and spicy, really exciting nose. Lush and piquant on the palate, this is an elegant, sharp and structured, very mineral and salty-piquant Riesling with concentrated fruit and serious grip on the finish. Excellent. Erich Krutzler is even happier with his 2018s than he was with his 2017s. The harvest started on August 30 and went until the end of September. "We got it all in one go in crazy hot weather," he reports. Although we started at six o'clock in the morning, we always picked through until the early afternoon and then put all the boxes (300 kilograms) into the rented refrigerated container and only processed the grapes in the evening and at night." The resulting wines are terrific again, with structure, grip and tension.

Pichler-Krutzler

Pichler-Krutzler Discover Cantina Pichler-Krutzler in the Wachau region and its fine wines in our online store In 2006 Elisabeth Pichler and Erich Krutzler founded their winery in the Wachau region. Both come from families belonging to the wine world, they have created together unique wines with a noble soul, based on respect for nature, through sustainable viticulture. Pichler-Krutzler wines reflect the territory from which they come. These are wines harvested, refined and bottled without any assembly. The vineyards, mainly Grüner Veltliner and Riesling, extend over stone terraces and can only be cultivated by hand. This is where a particular microclimate is created, influenced by the front, by the mild temperatures of Pannonia from the east by the cold winds that blow down from the valleys. The Wachau region, where these unique and quality wines are born, is in fact a real jewel recognized as World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
