Riesling Smaragd Steinertal FX Pichler 2016 (750ML)
93 Points, David Schildknecht, Vinous: "Luscious fruit - lime, grapefruit, honeydew melon and pit-tinged white peach - is allied with smoky, stony mineral underpinnings and mouthwatering salinity in a manner strongly suggestive of the corresponding vintage 2015 bottling. Silken-textured and glycerol-rich, this finishes with powerful fruit intensity while adding mouthwatering sweet-saline, iodine-tinged savor suggestive of shrimp-shell stock." 9/17
"Very cool, racy and delicate with an intense herbal, lemony and mineral freshness. A totally pristine dry riesling with a diamond-like brilliance at the long complex finish. Better from 2018 and for at least a couple of decades." 10/17
94 Points, Aleks Zecevic, Wine Spectator: "Very harmonious, with well-expressed flavors of lychee, violet, clementine and cardamom allied to a glossy texture and crunchy acidity. Very pretty and somewhat approachable now, but those who are patient will be rewarded as this comes together in the next several years. Best from 2020 through 2030. 30 cases imported." 2/19
95 Points, Anne Krebiehl MW, Wine Enthusiast: "A touch of citrus foliage and the merest hint of passion fruit color this wine's lemon aromas before taking over the entire palate. Its svelte, linear and concentrated body fizzes with lemon sherbet-like flavor. Let it calm down and reveal all its lemon verve. Drink 2020-2035." 3/18
