FX Pichler Gruner Veltliner Loibenberg Smaragd
This is one of the steepest and most austere primitive-rock sites encountered in Loiben. Loibnerberg, one of Wachau's largest coherent single vineyards, is fully exposed to the south and accordingly warm and sunny. The wines derived from this site are shaped by the unique composition of this first-class primitive-rock soil, which imparts longevity to them. Here, opulent, intense and yet subtle wines develop – Grüner Veltliner being full-bodied with underlying minerality, even slightly smoky and tobacco notes.
