Pichler who has become world- renowned for their intense and crystalline expressions of Riesling, which dazzle the senses while intriguing the intellect. With each vintage, the goal is to provide a perfect representation of the climate, the vineyard and the grape. Their single-vineyard bottlings hail from steep terraced slopes, originating from the 13th century. From these hand-tended vineyards come wines born of the earth and the very special microclimate of the Wachau, which provides a constant push and pull of warmth and cooling influences. The Rieslings of F.X. Pichler are hailed as the greatest examples from Austria, as they are some of the most intense and dramatically layered wines you could hope to ever experience. ✦ F.x.
