6 37.5cl Cuvee Beerenauslese,
Neusiedlersee KRACHER
(Dessert Wine)

Antonio Galloni -
A distinctly richer, deeper palette of aromas and flavours emerges from the 2009 Cuvée Beerenauslese. Tropical fruit, peaches, yellow stone fruits and spices flesh out in a wine that is beautifully layered, voluptuous and textured. The blend is 75% Welschriesling and 25% Chardonnay, aged 80% in steel and 20% in cask. Residual sugar is 114 grams per litre.
Please note, that the above is the review for the 2009 vintage, as the 2011 review is currently not available.

    F X PICHLER, Wachau
One of Austria's top estates, making really top-class wines - worth the price, please try a bottle!
     
4 75cl Riesling Smaragd Kellerberg
FX PICHLER

RP -
The 2006 Riesling Smaragd Kellerberg plumbs the deep, dark recesses of that site. Oriental tobacco, black pepper, malt, and wood smoke fill the mouth and inform a powerful finish. Distilled red currant, and lime zest accents remind me a bit of the Ruwer. Seven and a half grams of residual sugar are just enough to notice as sweetness, but unfortunately a bit of heat also creeps into the proceedings. Still, for opulence, abundance of flavour and sheer length, this is impressive stuff.
2006 £36.00 RP93

4 75cl Riesling Smaragd Loibner Steinertal
FX PICHLER

RP -
The 2006 Riesling Smaragd Steinertal smells of ripe apricot, yellow plum and Szechuan pepper. Pit fruit and pepper dominate the clear, juicy, sleek palate. Subtle smokiness and peppery pungency play beautifully off of the pure, ripe fruit, for a really animated effect. The finish is rich, smoke- and pepper-tinged, and succulently satisfying.
2006 £34.00 RP93

    RUDI PICHLER, Wachau
Another excellent estate; well worth trying a bottle.
     
8 75cl Riesling  Smaragd Steinriegl
RUDI PICHLER

RP -
The 2007 Riesling Smaragd Steinriegl is vividly peachy, with high-toned penetrating aromatic notes of citrus oil and fruit and herbal distillates that carry onto an oily rich palate, where mint, oregano, lemon, and peach are deployed with enormous refreshment and liveliness. Stony, chalky site-typical notes add to the long, pungent, citric, bitter-sweet, and persistently sappy finish. The textural richness and ripe flavours on display here belie this wine’s merely 13% alcohol.
2007 £19.00 RP91
2009-19
