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.

Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2016)
The 2016 Ried Steinertal Riesling Smaragd offers a fresh and concentrated white peach fruit aroma in a coolish and stony milieu with discreet citrus flavors. From weathered gneiss and granite soils, this is a full-bodied and concentrated Riesling with searing acidity but also remarkable concentration that gives this wine a very long and aromatic finish. It is lean, straight and mineral, really piquant, and reveals a salty, well structured finish. Very promising! Tasted as a sample in July 2017.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 88 Points (2014)
Very fresh-tasting, with exuberant acidity behind the fresh-cut apple and green peach flavors. Spicy finish, with dried savory notes and peppery hints. Drink now through 2019.

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.

Well matured, green walnut, elder flowers and citrus fruit, some cereals, nuts and cornflakes, very dry and fresh with quite some body and structure, also hints of leafy and peppery spice, rye bread and malt. A light bouquet of fresh green grapes, pome and stone fruit, classic Kamptal loss type with some mineral backbone mouthwatering finish.

A vibrant nose of apple blossom and orange zest with just a hint of ginger leads to a bracingly fresh palate of apple and lime. With surprising weight and texture, this clean, linear Riesling is a delightful shock to the palate with real purity and eternal finish.

Ornellaia Le Serre Nuove 2017
Coming primarily from the Estate’s younger vineyards and made with the same passion and attention to detail as Ornellaia, Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia is a true “second vin”. A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot, Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia combines generosity and depth of flavour with an engaging and vibrant personality.

Greywacke Chardonnay 2016
Greywacke Chardonnay 2016
An enticing combination of pink grapefruit, burnt orange and white nectarine interwoven with aromas of smoked almonds, hazelnut, and freshly cut hay. The savoury notes carries through onto the rich, textural palate, evidence of this wine’s low-intervention winemaking. An intricate bone-dry style that is highly concentrated with a distinct flintiness, tight structure and crisp, citrus finish.
