TASTING NOTES
The Cru Dürnsteiner Kellerberg is the paragon for a top single vineyard in the Wachau region. Vines are growing on south-eats facing terraces made of natural stones with soils of weathered Gneiss and some layers of Loess on the bottom of the slope. A long vegetation period caused by the cool airflow in the nights is inducing a very late harvest. This particular kind of microclimate is responsible for unique wines combining refinement and power in their own inimitable way. Often the wines are at once smoky-hedonic and delicate-savoury.The vines are 25-35 years old and the grapes picked by hand at the end of October/ beginning of November, are fermented and aged for 10 months in big oak casks. The wine that is obtained has citrus and pear-edged notes of miso paste play subtly on the nose. The clear and serene freshness on the palate then plays against a beautifully textured mouthfeel that is reminiscent of Russet pear peel and rich with salty yeastiness. The tingling pepper on the finish only adds to the allure. The finish is long and intense.

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.
