Riesling Ried Burgstall, Weingut F.X. Pichler 2021

Tasting Notes

Lovely, ripe peachy nose, but also notes of pink grapefruit and a touch of hibiscus. Juicy and concentrated, with excellent wet-stone minerality that lights up the bold and refreshing finish. Clearly the best vintage to date of this wine. From organically grown grapes. Vegan. Drink or hold.

From sandy gneiss soil on a windy plateau, the 2021 Loibner Riesling Ried Burgstall fermented in stainless steel and aged in large oak for three months before being released in May. It opens with a clear, fine and elegant bouquet of lime juice and rind intermingled with riper citrus fruit such as grapefruit but also lovely grass and herbal notes. On the palate, this is a round but dry and savory, saline and astringent dry Riesling with lush and charming fruit on the mid-palate but a still lean and grippy finish. This is a wine that should be cellared for some years before drinking, but it can also age for many years. 13% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine in September 2022.
