More information on wine critics and ratings
This Grüner Veltliner is a blend of wines sourced from different terraced vineyards. The elevated terraces consist of stonier soils (schisted granite). The vines there show aromatic expression, good acidity, elegant stone fruit and lots of minerals. The lower sited terraces mostly of layered fertile loess show more body and ripeness. By combining those two characteristics we get a really classic Grüner Veltliner with both finesse and a certain vigor.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 92 Points (2017)
A touch of reduction still clouds the ripe but tart red apple notes on the nose of this wine. With a little air, the fruit becomes more expressive, crescendoing into a savory core of yeast, flint, salty soy and sage. The finish brims with ripe lemon.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 91 Points (2017)
Smoke aromas extend on the palate to join hints of toasted hazelnut, which surrounds yellow apple and quince flavors, all underscored by sea salt detail in this white. This shows great harmony overall, with good intensity of flavors and acidity, leaving a salty impression on the finish. Drink now through 2027.

James Suckling (JS) : 90 Points (2017)
The discreet green-plum aroma, together with a satisfying balance of medium-body with animating acidity and a slightly salty finish, make this an appealing and food-friendly gruner veltliner. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 90 Points (2015)
Ripe pear and honeydew melon generously inform the nose as well as the ingratiatingly polished, caressing palate. Happily, crunchy evocations of cucumber and fresh green bean along with an abundance of green herbal and stony nuances guarantee a finish of invigoration as well as refreshment, while a sweet-saline savor reminiscent of raw scallop activates the salivary glands. (An amusing but annoying technicality that typifies the latest development in Austrian labeling: The expression 'Kamptaler Terrassen,' with which this bottling has long been labeled, was decreed an inadmissible geographical designation. But after Bründlmayer demonstrated that all of the vines supplying it are indeed on terraces, the authorities allowed that part to stand. (DS) (2/2017)

A rich and still juvenile bouquet of hay & honey blossoms, melon, yellow fruit with subtle exotic tones, as well as apple and citrus peel, followed by a whiff of peppery and toasty spice, at first fresh and dry but very sappy, with a creamy texture, almost rich, very complex and detailed, i.e. blossom honey, freshly cut citrus, apple and stone fruit, nicely contoured & firmly interwoven, with a long and spicy finish.

Citrus peel, white flowers, stone fruit and gooseberry dominate the graceful aromatic arc, delicate and bright fruit nuances on the palate, dry, fresh and pure with more yellow fruit and great acidity to match leading to a mineral and slightly spicy finish.

Delicate bouquet of pome and stone fruit enriched by flowery aspects (acacia) with a whiff of spice and yeast, dry, refreshing and stimulating, very sappy and well bodied with frequent joyful bursts of fruit flavor, perfectly balanced, as it also shows a strong backbone and good length.

A deep fragrance of passion fruit, yuzu citrus and peppermint radiates freshness and vitality and yet immediately drives deep. Highly elegant and distinguished, full of fruit charm and esprit, fills the mouth with bright aromas. Focused and complex all the way into the long finish. Extraordinary ageing potential.

Draws a broad arc that leads from hazel leaves over fully ripe apricot to bergamot orange. Crystal clear and multi-layered, very distinguished and with deep intensity that is still difficult to grasp. Chocolatey fullness and slowly fading oak tannins, but despite all its strength, finesse always sets the tone. A Grüner Veltliner that inspires dreams but shall require time.

F.X. Pichler M Gruner Veltliner Smaragd 2017
“M” is a very different style to the other wines from F.X. Pichler. This wine is bright yellow-green in colour. On the nose, there are notes of ripe mango, honey and spice. On the palate, there are spicy characters with a hint of anise. This wine is full-bodied, concentrated and the finish is long and luscious.

The wine has a very bright and intense violet color. Its aroma expresses red fruits like strawberries and cherries, balanced with the spicy notes of the oak. On the palate, it is round, with soft tannins and delicate mineral notes proving to be a wine of great character and remarkable structure.
