A blend of F.X. Pichler's vineyards in Dürnstein, historically small parcels from Kellerberg, Loibenberg, Mühlpoint and Steinertal. 60% comes from the terraces, and the balance from the flat. Floral with nicely defined fruit. Juicy and intense on the palate with a whack of mineral, spice and grapefruit kicking in through the finish.

From the first harvest pass in all the terraces (from younger vines) and from riper fruits in the flat area, the 2018 Dürnsteiner Grüner Veltliner Smaragd is clear, bright and white-fruited on the spicy-elegant nose. On the palate, this is a full-bodied but also fresh and piquant Veltliner Smaragd with good grip and nice bitters. Tasted at the domain in September 2019. Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate April 2020
