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) : 92 Points (2015)
Warm and intense on the nose, ripe and concentrated white fruit aromas open the 2015 Riesling Smaragd Loibner Loibenberg, which is pure and citric on the nose and very inviting. Pure, fresh and piquant on the palate, this is rather coolish and stunningly lean and pure Loibenberg compared to the corresponding Grüner Veltliner. Lucas believes that Riesling has eventually stopped the ripening process during the vegetation period. This 2015 has grip and tension and a rather coolish character.

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.

Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Fuder 10 2018
Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Fuder 10 2018

The terrifyingly steep Brauneberg hillside has been revered as a top vineyard site since the Romans first cultivated wine grapes in the Mosel valley in the second century AD.

The Juffer Sonnenuhr is the choicest center cut of the Brauneberg — the steepest and most south-facing part of the hillside that surrounds the sundial. This Grosse Lage (grand cru) site produces profound, distinctive wines with great purity and concentration.

Auslese is a special selection of late-picked, very ripe clusters with about 50 percent botrytisaffected grapes. It is a rich, concentrated, full-bodied style of Riesling, with a lively interplay between fruity sweetness and vibrant acidity. It makes a deliciously refreshing, palate-cleansing “sorbet” between courses, or a brilliant accompaniment to fresh fruit dessert dishes.
