FX Pichler Loibner Federspiel Wachau Riesling 2013


If you wish to know about the wines of Wachau in Austria, the Austrians make it particularly easy to learn.  Their website is terrific and here is the link: www.austrianwine.com/our-wine/wine-growing-regions/niederoesterreich-lower-austria/wachau/.  This wine is from FX Pichler in Wachau, and is a "Federspiel" which is a classification in Wachau and means that its alcohol is 11.5% to 12.5%.  In the glass, the wine has a delicious aroma of green apples, stones and apple skins.  Resolutely dry on the palate, the body is fullish and the acidity searing.  The acidity pierces without remorse through the fruit flavours, which otherwise have a plumpness to them.  The finish is balanced and has a subtle length to it.  A classic Austrian dry style, this riesling should drink well over the next decade or more.  Rating: Good to Very Good. Abv: 12.5%. Price: $60+. Website: fx-pichler.at,
