來自Wachau的Elisabeth Pichler-Krutzler和來自Burgenland的Erich Krutzler於2006年在Wachau開設了自己的酒莊，兩夫婦都來自著名的釀酒家族，他們一起以優質靈魂和個性製作酒品，完全尊重自然和可持續發展的葡萄種植方式。
這些都是Erich Krutzler從九十年代定下來的足跡，當時他為家族Krutzler在Südburgenland出產出色而有性格的紅酒，這也解釋了為甚麼Burgenland Blaufränkisch會和Riesling 及 Grüner Veltliner出奇地同時出現在貨品系列中。
於 600 至 1200 升橡木桶發酵，與酒渣一同陳年。
Elisabeth Pichler-Krutzler from the Wachau and Erich Krutzler from the Burgenland founded their own wine estate in the Wachau in 2006. Both husband and wife originated from famous wine-making families. Together, they craft wines of great soul and individuality, based on a respect form nature and sustainable viticultural practice.
All this is a continuation of the path that Erich Krutzler set out on in the 1990s when he helped his family estate produce outstanding and characterful red wines in the Südburgenland. This is why a Burgenland Blaufränkisch finds its place in the range alongside Riesling and Grüner Veltliner.
The Pichler-Krutzler wines are pure, unadulterated and made without compromise to quality. Each wine is the reflection of its own terroir, harvested, raised and bottled without blending. Since there is no chaptalization, no juice concentration, no fining or additives of any sort, all the wines express their origins plain and clear. Just high-grade handcraft without any fancy trends.
The Dürnsteiner Kellerberg is the paragon for a top single vineyard in the winegrowing region Wachau. Manual cared vines are grown on south-eastern facing terraces made with natural stone walls. The soil is dominated by Orthogneiss. A long vegetation period caused by cool airstreams during nights is resulting in a late harvest. This microclimatic combination is creating wines combining refinement and power in a matchless kind. Wines commonly are restrained and alluring, full-bodied and savoury at the same time, but always multi-layered with lot of depth.
Country of Origin:
Fermentation and Ageing:
Fermented in 600- and 1200 litre oak barrel, the wine was kept on the full lees.
The 2016 Ried Kellerberg has a deep, concentrated and aromatic bouquet of perfectly ripe and stewed stone-fruits (peaches, apricots), green paprika, apples, pears and herbs along with dusty, flinty notes of crushed stones. Full-bodied, round and elegant, this is a perfectly balanced and gorgeously aromatic Kellerberg with lush fruit, delicate acidity, very fine tannins and stimulating salinity on the pure and refined finish.
The 2017 Ried Kellerberg Riesling displays a very flinty and reductive bouquet of crushed stones and white stone fruit aromas. This is a full-bodied and structured, tannic and minerally Riesling with good power and energy and great elegance. Still very young and with great tension.
