History of F.X. Pichler The history of this estate dates back to 1898 when it was founded in Oberloiben. Franz and Lucas Pichler In 1928 Franz Pichler started to select his own Grüner Veltliner clones, focusing on the vines that were producing small-berried grapes, to ensure lower yields, better extract and fruit character - the estate’s reputation as undisputed Grüner specialists was starting to be formed. In the early 1970s Franz Xaver (F.X.) Pichler took over the… Read more

Robert Parker (RP) : 95+ Points (2017)
The 2016 Dürnsteiner Riesling Ried Kellerberg has a deep, concentrated and aromatic bouquet of perfectly ripe and stewed stone fruits (peaches, apricots), green paprika, apples, pears and herbs along with dusty, flinty notes of crushed stones. Full-bodied, round and elegant, this is a perfectly balanced and gorgeously aromatic Kellerberg with lush fruit, delicate acidity, very fine tannins and stimulating salinity on the pure and refined finish. Its silky texture, charming roundness and driving mineral vitality combine the best of two worlds: loess and Pannonian climate with gneiss and continental climate. The 2016 possesses great finesse and aging potential. Tasted a few days after the bottling in August 2017. Compared to the Loibenberg, the Kellerberg is still more angular and tensioned, and it needs some years to find its finesse. Both are terrific Rieslings.

The wine is complex and layered with citrus and peach fruit, with a spicy character on the palace and a lovely savouriness on the finish.

This is Pichler's flagship wine. It is their richest style, off-dry with ripe yellow peach flavours and a voluptuous palate due to its time spent in barrel.

“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.

Pale lemon in the glass. The nose is restrained and precise, with fresh green apple and spicy notes. On the palate, the 2015 Lois is quite full bodied and juicy, supported by harmonious acidity and herbal, peppery nuances that mingle with juicy green apple flavours. The finish is fresh with lingering pepperiness.
