Rudi Pichler Riesling Federspiel 2021

Rudi Pichler is among the elite growers of the Wachau wine region of Austria, producing wines of precision, power, and longevity. Rudi belongs to the prestigious Vinea Wachau and vinifies under the strict parameters of their codex. Yields are kept low (between 30 and 35 hectoliters per hectare) with botrytis carefully removed by hand. Grapes are crushed by foot and receive between three and 36 hours of maceration on the skins. Vinification is entirely in stainless-steel tanks and malolactic fermentation is avoided. Rudi uses vineyards on the valley floor, hillsides, and upper terraces for his Riesling Federspiel. Federspiel is a term used by Vinea Wachau members indicating a dry wine between 11.5% and 12.5% alcohol. This Wachau Riesling is an elegant, dry style, with fresh minerality accompanied by aromas and flavours of citrus and stone fruit.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
