2017 Pichler-Krutzler Ried Loibner Loibenberg Grüner Veltliner

SKU #1497851 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A funky whiff hints at some promising reduction on the nose before savory notes of citrus, arugula and miso take over. There is a ripe core that adds juicy, rounded pear notes to the savoriness that goes well with the rich, smooth texture of the wine. The finish is lasting, salty and moreish. (AK) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

Outer quote mark From a single parcel with 50-year-old vines on a loessy soil and picked on October 5th, the 2017 Ried Loibenberg Grüner Veltliner fermented in stainless steel but aged on the lees in 1,200-liter oak vats. This GV is a powerful, intensely juicy but finely structured wine with good salinity and freshness in the finish. As rich as it starts out on the palate is how pure and mineral it is in the finish. Very intense. A stunning and persistent wine with grip and tension. The 2017 still needs time to reduce the rather opulent fruit. Tasted in Oberloiben/Wachau, September 2018. 2017 was the earliest harvest before 2018, which started 14 days earlier than the previous year. The 2017s were harvested between September 13 and October 14; whereas in 2018, Erich Krutzler started on August 30. From the 2017 vintage, the Riesling Ried Kellerberg is outstanding, as is the Pfaffenberg Old Vines Grüner Veltliner. This is another excellent series from Erich Krutzler and Elisabeth Pichler, presented to me in September of this year. (SR) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very expressive, with Mirabelle plum, nectarine and lemon oil flavors. Shows a creamy texture and savory minerality midpalate, while the finish leaves a sweet spice note, inviting you back for another sip. Give this a few years to unravel. Best from 2021 through 2028. Inner quote mark (10/2019)
