"Pichler's 2014 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Kellerberg opens with a deep and complex bouquet with crushed stone aromas intertwined with flint, crushed coffee beans, snow pea and citrus flavors. Very salty and full of tension on the palate, this is a medium to full-bodied, yet pure, straight and mineral Gruner with a long, grippy and very stony finish. Great aging potential. Drink: 2019-2030. 94 points

Lucas Pichler has bottled one of the greatest collections of Grüner Veltliner in 2014. Especially the warmer crus, such as Kellerberg (Veltliner and Riesling) and Loibenberg (Veltliner), which came out very well in the difficult 2014 vintage - whose weather conditions made it impossible to select both prestige cuvées, Grüner Veltliner M and Riesling Unendlich. Pichler's 2014 Veltliners are very clear, pure and moderate in alcohol, but full of tension and stimulating purity. Botrytis or overripe Smaragd wines? History. Pichler's single vineyard wines are serious terroir wines."
