Ried Schütt Durnsteiner Smaragd Riesling 2013

If Kellerberg is aromatic Schutt is definitely pristine minerality
Searing and tingling
In such great shape
This wine can be enjoyed now or in long time too is my guess
From fresh grape to kiwi and persimmon
A bit gingery, lemongrass, marzipan and a river bed of stones.. and freshness that keeps coming back
And so much fun going on
A winter riesling in a way
Extremely long

Bergdistel Smaragd Grüner Veltliner 2017

Kevin Arndt

Rich opulent vintage (it is Smaragd) but still a core of mouthwatering acidity. Good minerallity with dandelion, slight white pepper and radish. Stone and tree fruits of green and yellow apple, yellow plum and quince. — 11 days ago

Dürnsteiner Kellerberg Smaragd Grüner Veltliner 2010

From when i popped it open i had a smile stuck on my face😊
Intense and delicate..perhaps that is why
FX Pichler is considered to be the Romanee-Conti of the Wachau
The wine is imperial, it has a magnetism something rarely experienced
Grilled pineapple, white pepper (so focus), coriander, nutmeg, hay, honeycomb, rocks and herbs like there's no tomorrow
It feels like being in a high montain plateau in full spring, bees buzzing on the flowers
It is a picture that lingers with the outstanding superlong persistence
One of those wines

Selektion Viticole Spitzer Graben Wachau Grüner Veltliner 2018

On day one, a bracingly crisp Grüner. On day 3, another world opens up with balanced lemon pith and a bit of richer curd, salinity, and limestone. Lovely, just give it some time. — 7 days ago

Klaus Smaragd Riesling 2019

A very dry and high acid wine. Good ripe fruit flavors but not overpowering. Almost verging on underwhelming but it was a solid middle of the road variety of flavors that this wine is known for. Would go well with almost anything and this was delicious with cheese and curry. — 3 days ago
