Rudi Pichler Grüner Veltliner Federspiel 2022
Rudi Pichler is among the elite growers of the Wachau producing wines of precision, power, and longevity. His Grüner Veltliner Federspiel comes from vineyards on the valley floor, hillsides, and upper terraces. The term Federspiel is used by members of the Vinea Wachau indicating a dry wine between 11.5% and 12.5% alcohol. Grüner Veltliner is the signature grape of Austria and produces a dry white wine with savoury aromas, spicy flavours, and good acidity. Grüner Veltliner Federspiel from the Wachau is a medium-weight wine and is fresh in style with notes of green apple, lemon and radish. Grüner Veltliner’s bright acidity and savoury character make it an ideal partner to mildly spiced Thai, and Chinese flavours. Fish and shellfish are accented by Grüner Veltliner’s citrus and mineral profile while its acidity cuts the richness of pork or ham. It can also work well with foods that are difficult to pair such as asparagus.
