Bestseller: Riesling Loibenberg Smaragd
Best wine: Riesling Unendlich Smaragd
Best location: Dürnsteiner Kellerberg
Location details: This vertiginous, barren and purist primitive-rock terrace, which is exposed from south to south-east and located at the exit of a side valley, creates a very special microclimate. The Kellerberg vineyard is already pampered by the sun early in the morning. During night, cool air streaming in from the bordering woods fosters the development of the complex texture and delicately nuanced, usually exotic aromas and flavors typical of this wine.
Best year: 2006
Awards: "F.X. PICHLER IS THE CHATEAU LATOUR, DOMAINE DE LA ROMANEE-CONTI; ZIND-HUMBRECHT; SANDRONE AND HELEN TURLEY OF THE WACHAU." Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate
Countries we export to: USA, UK, Deutschland, Schweiz und Dänemark
Mission statement: What we want is to craft wines that reflect the year, the soil and the special microclimate in the Wachau. The subtle nuances of each single vineyard are to be experienced and tasted in their multi-layered uniqueness. To us, vinification is comparable to the birth of a human being. The wine also requires affextion, care and the guidance to perfection.
Our MSE 2017 Statement: We are pleased to try some excellent wines with the best known sommeliers!
