Professional Wine Reviews for Rudi Pichler Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Hochrain 2018

Rated 94 by Wine Spectator
Shows class, with an expressive palate, featuring a complex array of ripe peach, apple, glazed pear and vanilla bean flavors. Delivers ample minerality midpalate, which joins the acidity to create a vibrant backbone. Finely balanced, presenting a long finish of mineral, cream and white chocolate. Best from 2021 through 2030.
Rated 93 by James Suckling
Wet stones and an array of pepper and lightly poached pear aromas. The smooth, fleshy palate has great depth and succulent, supple and mouth-filling presence. Smooth finish. Drink now.

Winery Rudi Pichler

Region: Wachau

As with almost all of the central European wine regions, the Austrian region of Wachau was first used for cultivating grapevines on a large scale by the Romans, two thousand years ago. Today, it remains a vitally important wine region, and is by far the most respected and widely adored region of Austria, with the wineries of Wachau enjoying their reputation for excellence and elegance when it comes to the superb wines they produce each year. The mighty river Danube that runs through the Wachau vineyards provides adequate moisture and plenty of minerals and nutrients for the region's grapes, and the warm climate helps the Riesling and Gruner Veltliner varietals which flourish there ripen slowly and fully, resulting in flavorful and characterful wines of real distinction.

Country: Austria

Austria is a fascinating country when it comes to wine production, and with a wine culture that stretches back over four thousand years, it is one of the oldest viticultural centers in the world. Today, it is the Grüner Veltliner varietal grape which is the most widely grown and processed, producing elegant dry white wines, and very flavorful and aromatic sweet wines enjoyed to a great extent by local communities, and which are beginning to receive the recognition they deserve by the global wine market. Austria's eastern flatlands benefit from fertile and mineral rich soils, fed by the great river Danube, as well as the long hot summers the country enjoys with low precipitation. Today, over fifty thousand hectares of Austrian land is under vine, and even within the city limits of Vienna, high quality wine is produced and enjoyed.
