FX Pichler Gruner Veltliner 'M' Smaragd 2012
Legendary Austrian producer located in the heart of Lower Austria’s most famed region, Wachau. This varietal Gruner Veltliner is elegant and refined, full of exotic fruit-forwardness and lightning like acidity. Complex, voluptuous, and a standard-bearer for Austrian whites.
The land of Schwartzenegger and strudel delivers ethereal, electric whites along the Danube, but Grüner and Riesling aren't the whole story; its savory, mineral, lightweight reds can be revelatory.
