TASTING NOTES
High above the Danube, on the famous Steiner Pfaffenberg, the vines that give us this wine grow. The soils are arid and are composed of crystalline primary rock dominated by gneiss and mica schists. Simply perfect for Riesling. Exclusively hand-treated and organic since 2017 it has all the attributes to have been a wine of character and fine in the glass: transparent and extremely elegant without any heaviness either. The vines are 35 years old and the manual harvest is in mid-October. Fermentation and maturation last 5-6 months in stainless steel. A delicious hint of potentilla crushed on sun-warmed stone reaches the nose before the ripe lemon peel makes its entrance. On the palate it is concentrated and deep and from its structure comes an intense and ripe lemon juiciness. This Riesling is mouthwatering and pure, with a structural complexity that suggests this wine will evolve and show more of its herbaceous side. The finish is dry and impressive. Drink now and until 2035.

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.
