2022 Pichler-Krutzler, Grüner Veltliner "Ried Kellerberg"

Pichler-Krutzler and F.X. Pichler are often equated to Grand Cru Burgundy in terms of quality for their single site Grüner Veltliner. "Ried Kellerberg" is the paragon for a top single vineyard in the Wachau. 

The 2022 Grüner Veltliner "Ried Kellerberg" shows a vivid straw-gold with silver-green reflections. Explosively aromatic, offering up citrus peel, peach pit, and bruised yellow apple, with white-pepper-dusted legumes, and crushed rock minerality. This is one of the more graceful, elegant examples of Grüner that we can think of, delivering as much complexity in the nose as on the palate, which is what really sets Pichler-Krutzler at a notch above the rest. On the palate the wine is, lean, incredibly focused and seamless from start to finish, driven by pure, supple fruit flavors and a stark minerality. Layers of just-ripe white peach, yellow apple, and honeydew melon are met with an eye-opening kiss of cracked white pepper, with depth, persistence and great tension. Enjoy this now, or hold for the next decade.
