F.X. Pichler Sauvignon Blanc Grosse Reserve 2015

"The golden-yellow 2015 Sauvignon Blanc Grosse Reserve is sourced on the sandy loess soils of the Steinertal in Loiben, in a cooler creek next to the Pfaffenberg. It is produced only in very, very warm vintages such as 2003, 2006, 2009, 2015 and 2016. Fermented and aged for 16 months in four used Burgundy pièces and one new 500-liter barrel with one bâtonnage per week but no addition of sulphur. This was assembled in January and will be bottled in late July. The sample that I tasted in early July opens with a deep, intense and perfectly ripe (pineapple and passion fruit) bouquet with some noble oak and yeasty aromas that are perfectly interwoven. Full-bodied, rich and intense but pure and piquant on the palate, this is a stunningly fresh, mineral, tensioned and firmly structured Sauvignon Blanc with very fine tannins and a vibrant character. Although it partly underwent malolactic fermentation, it is super fresh and grippy. A great and promising Sauvignon Blanc from the Wachau. Drink 2022-2030. 93-95/100.” Stephan Reinhardt - TWA
