F. X. Pichler

Any discussion of dry Rieslings has to eventually turn towards Austria, which probably produces more truly profound dry Riesling than any other country. Of all the country’s producers, none has been awarded the acclaim of F. X. Pichler. In my experience, it is justly deserved.

The Pichler wines combine the power of the finest Rieslings with a chiseled richness that is uniquely Austrian. These are wines that explode aromatically but never appear overdone or excessive on the palate. The wines are seamless and complete yet maintain a wonderful clarity about them.

F. X. Pichler produces quite a few Rieslings and I can’t say that I’ve had them all, but I do thoroughly enjoy these:

F.X. Pichler Urgestein Terrassen Riesling Federspiel $25

F.X. Pichler Durnsteiner Hollerin Riesling Smaragd $50

F.X. Pichler Durnsteiner Kellerberg Riesling Smaragd $65
