TASTING NOTES
The Loiben appellation indicates the vineyards of the villages Ober and Unterloiben at the eastern entrance to the Wachau area. The soil, slightly sloping towards the Danube, is dominated by gravel mixed with some sandy sediments. At night, fresh air from a side valley, the so-called Menthalgraben, flows into the Loibner basin. This type of terroir results in very pure and vigorous wines that show a high but nonetheless mature acidity. The vines are a little younger than all the others of the Pichler-Krutzler company, in fact they have an average age of 20 years. The harvest is always manual and also for 2021 it began at the beginning of October. The fermentation and maturation of the wine in steel takes 4-5 months. As a note regarding the 2021 harvest, it can be said that it was an exceptional year. The wines achieved high acidity with enormous density and length. For PICHLER-KRUTZLER, 2021 was one of the best vintages of the last two decades. This Riesling in the glass has a bright yellow-green color, delicate stone fruits such as peach and apricot envelop the nose, and in the mouth it is well balanced, juicy with good acidity, for a long and mineral finish. Since 2019 the winery and all its wines are certified organic - AT-BIO 402.

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.
