2017 FX Pichler "M" Smaragd Gruner Veltliner, Wachau
FX Pichler is absolutely one of the top producers in Austria. Their house style seems to be more towards wines of depth and concentration, and the "M" bottling is a Smaragd (later harvest) wine that proves itself to be one of the top bottles of spicy Gruner Veltliner made.
"Enormous ripeness and concentration, but the exotic-fruit notes are very delicate. Great harmony, in spite of the creaminess and the hint of oak. Very long, seamless finish. Drink or hold. 98 pts." -- James Suckling
