Straw hue, strong citrus notes on the nose and palate, lemon and orange peel and grapefruit; also, white pepper and delicate albeit spicy vegetal notes. Jumpy acidity on the palate almost effervescent but without visual evidence of gas. Light, fresh, crisp, and dry. 12% ABV. Vintage 2017. #federspiel #grunerveltliner #rudipichler #wachau #austrianwine — 2 years ago
Fresh, tensile and loaded with filigree structure, this is one sharp and linear dry Riesling. The cooler vintage is apparent, but I still get some peach, honey, and then the citrus parade starts with lime, lemon and pink grapefruit. An underlying saline and smoky mineral note completes the terroir expression. Complex. Gorgeous. Oddly enough this would pair exceptionally with some ice cold raw oysters with just a spritz of lemon juice.

A beautiful representation of Pinot Blanc (Weissburgunder), excellent cut and precision on the green apple, pear, lime and mineral rock. A tinge of spice on the finish. Like a Chablis 1er with more body. Lengthy, fresh and energetic finish. This has mellow some since I last had it.
