The 2015 Riesling Smaragd Weissenkirchner Achleithen is rich and yeasty, yet pure on the nose and offers herbal, stony, bread and ripe fruit flavors on the nose. Highly elegant and finesse-full on the palate, this is a full-bodied, mineral and complex wine with a long and salty finish with lots of tension. (SR)
Greenhouse-like scents of flowers and foliage are pungently and strikingly allied with smoky, struck flint and crushed stone. The palate is expansive and oily, yet possessed of brightly juicy apple. Piquant orange zest and apple seed, along with a reemergence of alkaline, stony and smoky elements, inform a brightly and pungently clinging, mouthwateringly salt-tinged finish. Pichler picked a portion of his Achleiten (which differs dramatically in exposure and significantly in soil from most of this site) in early October, which no doubt enhanced the sense of energy and buoyancy now on exhibit in bottle.
