About the Wine
Rudi Pichler is among the absolute best producers in all of Austria. He was awarded Falstaff’s Vintner of the Year in 2010.His winery is producing wines of precision, power, and longevity.
The cellar is based in the village of Wösendorf where generations of Pichler's have tended vines since 1731. Rudolph Pichler III took over the winery in 1997 and has since expanded the vineyards and constructed a modern cellar in 2004. While the winery is modern and equipped with state-of-the-art technology, Rudy takes a more traditional and simpler approach to winemaking. He says “The most important thing is that the grapes have to be in balance. When the wine is in balance, you don’t have to make it. You’re not a winemaker just a caretaker. I just take care of them.”
He is the Riesling king in Austria. This grape and Riesling make up 95% of the production with the remaining 5% shared between Weißburgunder and Roter Veltliner.
Rudi has passed his expertise and wisdom to his son, Rudi junior, who works hand in hand with Rudi to create these white wines that Falstaff calls“precise and full of character.”
Tasting Notes: 100% Riesling. This is an extremely elegant wine that shows a delicate structure. Beautiful aromas of white peaches, apples, and apricot with subtle notes of slate. This wine pairs amazingly with seafood, appetizers, and fruit desserts.
