FX Pichler 2017 "Loibner Loibenberg" Riesling Smaragd, Wachau, Austria

Riesling Smaragd Loibnerberg is the quintessence of rich, exotic multi-layered Riesling.

Winemaker:  Louis Pichler

Farming: Sustainable

Variety: Riesling

Terroir: This is one of the steepest and most austere primitive-rock sites encountered in Loiben. Loibnerberg, one of Wachau's largest coherent single vineyards, is fully exposed to the south and accordingly warm and sunny. The wines derived from this site are shaped by the unique composition of this first-class primitive-rock soil, which imparts longevity to them.

Vinification: Multi-pass manual picking of premium-quality,  physiologically highly ripe grapes; careful grape processing,  and traditional upbringing of the wines in large oak casks; and aiming for naturalness and distinctiveness by doing consistently without chaptalization, fining and concentration.
