Rudi Pichler Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Terrassen 2012

Rudi Pichler Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Terrassen 2012

Saline, alkaline marine breeze notes - along with celery seed and a hint of clean sweat - convey a bracing and positively reductive character in the nose of Rudi Pichler’s 2012 Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Terrassen. Pungent, zingy juiciness of lime and pineapple near the core inform an expansive and substantial yet succulent and refreshing palate, with the salinity announced in the wine’s nose reprising for mouthwatering persistence along with harmonious interaction of further mineral nuances and green herbal pungency with citrus. I would anticipate impressive performances through 2020.

Wine maker notes
Soil characteristics of many small, excellent sites come together so nicely in this Smaragd: fine minerality, subtle fruit flavors, tobacco spices and peppery elegance.
