    Despite mid-September picking, this finished, at 12.3 percent, with a half-degree more alcohol than its 2014 predecessor. Fortunately, the effect remains buoyant and the flavors adequately ripe. Honeydew melon, crisp, just-ripe pear and fresh lime deliver abundant juiciness and zest on a polished palate bursting with flavor, leading to a long, consummately refreshing finish whose crunchy evocations of lettuce and snap pea resolve any doubts about what grape variety is in your glass.

    Clear, deep and dense, but multilayered on the nose, the 2013 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Loibner Steinertal displays herbal-scented notes of legumes and super-ripe as well as concentrated Veltliner berries. Full-bodied, powerful and rich, but also very elegant and fresh with finesse on the palate, this well-structured, mineral wine is already accessible but should gain even more finesse with further bottle age.

    Pichler's 2013 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Loibner Loibenberg shows a very clear, lemon-fresh, herbal-flavored and complex bouquet leading to a vibrant, spicy, tension-filled, yet every elegant and expressive, palate. And this rich and full-bodied wine dances over the palate, followed by a very long and complex finish. A great Veltliner, indeed.

    From probably the warmest vineyard of the Wachau, the 2015 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Loibner Loibenberg is a full-bodied, rich and intense, very juicy, but also piquant and mineral Veltliner with tobacco flavors on the nose. Dense and with an old-vines intensity, this Loibenberg offers ripe yellow stone fruits with a tropical touch, but is also very well structred and finishes with a long and salty aftertaste. An impressive wine.

    The 2016 Ried Steinertal Grüner Veltliner Smaragd is from the coolest Grüner Veltliner single vineyard of the Pichler family, with sandy gneiss and granite soils. The 2016 opens with a clear and fresh but also intense fruit aroma that is still a bit discreet on the nose. The attack on the palate is really fresh and piquant due to remarkable acidity. The wine is pure and mineral, shows a good phenolic grip and reveals white fruit aromas like yellow-skinned apples. The finish is clear, fresh and grippy and shows some attractive crispy fruit flavors. This is a lean, elegant, well balanced, medium to full-bodied Grüner Veltliner with less than 13% alcohol. Tasted as a sample in early July 2017. Scheduled for bottling in late July 2017.

    A stunning mirabelle, herbal and flinty nose that's as intense as it is delicate. The muscular leanness of a long-distance runner combined with enormous minerality make this a very special grüner veltliner with an extremely long, exciting finish. You could drink it now, but this will age for at least a couple of decades.

    The 2016 Ried Loibenberg Grüner Veltliner Smaragd is from the warmest vineyard of the family. Coming from a steep, terraced, very skeletal cru with iron-rich gneiss soils, the 2016 opens with a super clear, cool, fresh and well-defined nose that comes along with herbal and flinty notes but still indicates ripe and concentrated fruit from a warm vineyard. Full-bodied, round and intense, with perfectly ripe and warm fruit, this is a pure, piquant and crisp Grüner Veltliner with very good grip and mineral freshness. The finish is quite lush, the mineral structure, salinity and freshness stimulating. Lucas Pichler says that, in warmer vintages, he picks the vineyard ten days earlier than his father did and without botrytis to keep the freshness and elegance. His 2016 is great proof of that, although it was not a warm vintage. Tasted as a sample in early July, three weeks before the bottling.

    Still a little closed, but there's great yellow fruit aromas, a hint of floral honey and plenty of depth. Almost opulent, but with great freshness at the finish. Better from 2018 and will still impress in a couple of decades and probably beyond, too.

    The 2016 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd M is sourced in the Loibenberg (50%), Kellerberg and Liebenberg and was picked very late, with ripe and over-ripe berries that give intense and concentrated fruit aromas. The M tries to extract the "Maximum" from Grüner Veltliner and was macerated for 24 hours before the juice was fermented in a newer 5,000-liter barrel from Franz Stockinger. On the palate, this is a full-bodied, ripe, rich, elegant, rather smooth and powerful but still piquant and salty Grüner Veltliner with firm but fine tannins and lingering fruit. This is a very different style compared to the crus from Lucas Pichler.

    A strikingly and - for this cepage - unusually citric nose and palate encompass kumquat and pineapple for a piquant and tangy yet tropical, lusciously ripe impression; nor does this wine want in the least for palpable density. And all of this has been achieved at a modest 12.7% alcohol, lending a remarkable sense of lift. The finish here is clear and ringing, introducing site-typical pepper and tobacco while offering crystalline stoniness, floral perfume and green herbal essences. It#s the lightest Grüner Veltliner Smaragd I have ever bottled<(>,<)> notes Lucas Pichler, and I#m confident we#d have to go well back in estate history to find a lower-alcohol exemplar rendered by his father. Bottled in early August, this spent May and June in cask, but was otherwise in tank.

    With his 2012 Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Steinertal, says Lucas Pichler, the aim is to showcase the vineyard, which is a cool site, whereas in Loiben, really, things are (generally) a bit too warm. Prior to this solo debut spurred by the acquisition of a second parcel the Pichlers Gruner Veltliner from this site went into their Loibenberg (and M). This solo Steinertal projects delightfully luscious and exuberant pear and melon fruit along with saliva-inducing, metaphorically cooling suggestions of stalk celery. A sweet-smoky bite of Szechuan pepper lends invigoration and cut to a juicily protracted finish. A model of elegance and lift allied to fundamentally rich ripeness, it should perform beautifully through at least 2022.

    This vintage's M originates solely in the Loibenberg and, following a common practice in the Wachau, takes the designation Reserve because of having finished fermenting with too much residual sugar (in this case, 16 grams) to qualify as Smaragd. A further consequence is its weighing in at only a bit more than 13% alcohol. This was raised in a once-used 2 ,500-liter cask so there is still some resin and spice from the oak, but, like the wine#s subtle sweetness, that element manages to integrate successfully into honey and cocoa powder notes that inflect luscious flavors of peach, pineapple, pink grapefruit and mango. Surprisingly fruit-dominated, this expansive and creamily textured Riesling elixir acquires welcome counterpoint and invigoration thanks to piquancy of peach kernel and tart twang of pineapple core and grapefruit rind. It finishes with compelling, indeed amazing, length, if not#for now, at least#significant complexity of an interactive so

    Helles Gelbgrün. Mit saftigen Steinobstanklängen unterlegte dunkle Mineralik, ein Hauch von frischen Wiesenkräutern und Marillen, zarte Anklänge von Orangenzesten. Saftig, extraktsüß, feine Fruchtsüße, komplex und finessenreich strukturiert, eleganter Speisenbegleiter, sicheres Reifepotenzial, gelbe Frucht im Nachhall.

    Beautifully concenrated with apricot perfume, the 2013 Riesling Smaragd Loibner Loibenberg is a rich, full-bodied and enervating fresh and salty Smaragd of remarkable elegance and purity. Very well-balanced and long on the palate, this tension-filled Riesling elixir has a persistent salinity and steely acidity that gives it excellent aging potential.

    Helles Gelbgrün, Silberreflexe. Mit feinen Mandarinennuancen unterlegte gelbe Steinobstnote, frische Tropenfrucht, mineralischer Touch, facettenreiches Bukett. Engmaschig, feine weiße Frucht, rassige Säurestruktur, zitronige Nuancen, wirkt noch fast schlank, bleibt sehr lange haften, delikater Abgang, vibrierende Länge, großes Zukunftsversprechen.

    From the estate's parade vineyard, the 2013 Riesling Smaragd Dürnsteiner Kellerberg displays a very rich and intense aroma of super-ripe and concentrated Riesling berries. Rich and powerful, but also precise, impressively concentrated and piquant on the palate, this well-balanced and highly elegant Riesling with its lemon and orange aftertaste is another signature wine of both the Wachau and the 2013 vintage. It's aging potential should be terrific. A serious, tension-filled Riesling of great expression, which I highly recommend.

    Succulent white peach and Persian melon are tinged more subtly than usual for this bottling with Madagascar and Szechuan peppercorns, black tea and crushed stone. There is hauntingly bittersweet floral perfume wafting through this entire performance, almost as though some Achleiten or Heiligenstein got loose in the fermenter. A high-toned suggestion of almond extract adds to the sweet impression of fruitiness (despite analytical dryness); and a mandarin orange note adds aromatic as well as brightly juicy allure in perfect harmony with a seductively creamy texture. Piquancy of peach kernel lends stimulating counterpoint and engenders a glowingly persistent finish. The combination of pit fruit, citrus and floral aromatics with complex peppery notes left in the empty glass is head-turning. This is as refined a Kellerberg Riesling as it has been my pleasure to experience. What#s more, it represents the first time I can recall using the word buoyant to de

    Helles Gelbgrün, Silberreflexe. Feine gelbe Steinobstnuancen, ein Hauch von Orangenzesten, dunkle Mineralik. Saftig, elegante Textur, feinfruchtig und von einer finessenreichen Säure getragen, salziger Touch, zitronige Nuancen im Abgang, sicheres Entwicklungspotenzial.

    Fresh and distilled mirabelle, red raspberry and white peach combine for an ethereally high-toned and penetrating aroma followed by a lusciously fruity, expansive palate impression. Yet for all of its generous fruitiness, this also reveals mineral elements including shimmering crystallinity and sheer stoniness. A salty, piquant impression of peach close to the core, along with zesty, bittersweet orange and lemon peel, make for a memorably intense yet mouthwatering and far from severe finish. As usual, Pichler raised this wine entirely in tank, successfully counteracting the site's tendencies toward excessive breadth and loss of levity.

    Helles Gelbgrün. Ein Hauch von Blütenhonig, feiner Weingartenpfirsich, etwas Ananas, dezenter Orangentouch. Saftig, feine gelbe Tropenfrucht, rassiger Säurebogen, zitroniger Touch, salziger Nachhall, wird von Flaschenreife profitieren. Feinstrahlig und pur wie ein Gebirgsbach.

    The 2014 Riesling Smaragd Dürnsteiner Kellerberg shows a deep and dusty bouquet of crushed stones intertwined with white fruits, lemon peel oil and refreshing vegetal flavors. This Riesling is full-bodied, elegant, very salty, fresh and linear on the palate, with a piquant acidity. This is a very pure and stony Riesling full of grip and detonating tension. There is great definition and complexity here, with lemon flavors in the finish. Still very young, but stimulating and with great aging potential.

    Headily fragrant and lusciously mouth-filling honey-slicked peach and mango are complemented by incisive pepper, piquant peach kernel, pungent green herbs, smoky tobacco, zesty citrus peel and shimmering crushed stone. Sheer energy seems to reverberate in an unforgettably ravishing and sustained finish.
