Pichler FX Grüner Veltliner 2018

A very nice glass of Grüner~but much less expressive than the Loibner.

“M” means Monumental and is a single-vineyard wine introduced in 1991 as a memorial to Grüner Veltliner: hence a monument. As a rule, the grapes for our “M” are harvested one to two weeks later than our other top vineyard wines. Depending on the vintage and the course of the vegetation, the “M” consists largely of the oldest terraces on the Loibenberg and a meticulous selection of several, very high-quality vineyards at the foothills. The fruit for the Riesling is sourced from the Dürnsteiner Kellerberg, and the grapes for our Grüner Veltliner come from the Dürnsteiner Liebenberg, as well as the Kollmütz vineyard in nearby Wösendorf. When it comes to Grüner Veltliner, our “M” is always produced as a dry wine. The Riesling “M” is often bottled in an off-dry style, which gives it additional density and length. *source internet
