F.X. Pichler, Riesling Smaragd 'Terrassen' 1999


F.X. Pichler is one of the most famous names in Austria. Their riesling is made in a rich, dry, intense style, with a bold herbaceousness that brings to mind the Sancerre of the greats like Vatan and Cotat. ‘Terrassen’ is a cooler vineyard site, so the wines tend to be a little more elegant, savory, and crisp.

Tastes like: Honeydew, lemon peel, and wild mushroom.
How to drink: With herb-marinated grilled chicken or fish.

*Opening old wine can be tricky. Many corks are fragile, and if you’re not careful, can break. Just because a cork crumbles doesn't mean the wine’s off. If you're new to buying old wine or curious about the condition, just reach out. 

Please note: we aren’t able to take returns of any corked or damaged bottles.
