Rudi Pichler

Grown on terraces with soils of Gföhl gneiss and loess, the old vines produce a minerally wine with plenty of fruit and vibrant acidity.

Wine Advocate

The 2007 Weissburgunder Smaragd Kollmutz - harvested early November - is the wine Rudi Pichler thinks most typical of its vintage. Apple, pear, grapefruit, and hazelnut inform a rich, creamy, yet juicy, fresh-fruited palate, and saline, smoky notes add mineral interest that persists in to a long, soothing, yet refreshing finish. This will prove terrifically versatile at table over at least the next 5-7 years, and offers one more example of the outstanding potential in Austria of this unfortunately relatively neglected grape.

Score: 90. —David Schildknecht, February 2009.
