FX Pichler Gruner Veltliner Loibner Federspiel 2018
The winery of F. X. Pichler has been in the hands of the Pichler family for five generations and is located in the Wachau Valley. The vineyards are concentrated on the southern side of the Danube and are planted in steep terraces, originating from the 13th century.F. X. Pichler only produces white wines: Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. Since 1999 Lucas Pichler is responsible for the vinification, while his farther F.X. continues to meticulously take care of the vines. Their philosophy is to produce world class wines. They want 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.
"Vinified in stainless steel, the 2018 Grüner Veltliner Loibner Federspiel is terribly aromatic and fresh on the highly attractive and spicy-phenolic and floral nose. Lush, clear, elegant and with stimulating grip, this is a juicy, round and accessible Veltliner for immediate pleasure". - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
