Founded in 1898, Pichler is one of the wineries that help put Austria on the world wine map. Their philosophy is to get the best out of the excellent potential nature offers us. A responsibility not only towards their family, but also towards nature, history and the wine, because the capital is the vineyards, the vines and the understanding gained from tradition in association with intuition and world-openness. What they want is to craft wines that reflect the year, the soil and the special microclimate of the Wachau. The subtle nuances of each single vineyard are to be experienced and tasted in their multi-layered uniqueness.

The 2017 Dürnsteiner Riesling Smaragd (formerly Oberhauser) is from the first picking in the terraces as well as from the Trum and Oberhauser (today Klostersatz). Fermented in stainless steel and bottled in April, the wine shows a fine and discreet, herbal/floral-scented apricot nose that leads to a racy-piquant, light and crispy palate with enormous purity and freshness. Grown on gravelly soils in the plains, this is a stunning, vital and crunchy Smaragd with a long, intense and purely mineral finish that is full of tension. Tasted in Oberloiben/Wachau, September 2018. Wine Advocate 92 (2017)
