The more savory aspects of Grüner Veltliner are present in the aroma of this wine, with yellow apple and spice notes. On the palate, the minerality that is typical of these vineyards comes through, with herb and some wax bean notes.
Federspiel designates the wine from the middle harvest in the Wachau, and is typically the largest single production wine at the winery.

Rudi Pichler Gruner Veltliner Federspiel 2010
"In fact, especially as regards Riesling, I’d say it’s little short of a marvel! Pichler’s 2010 Gruner Veltliner Federspiel is one of those examples of its vintage and varietal that is salad-like in its crisp, juicy, subtly bitter and deliciously refreshing resemblance to an amalgam of lettuces and cress, here dressed with fresh lime and a pinch of saliva-inducing salt. For all of its buoyancy, this 12% alcohol Veltliner preserves a palpable sense of high-extract, and one enjoys an unobstructed perception of myriad herbal and mineral finishing nuances. Not for the first time, this grower has rendered an exemplary Federspiel that serves as a fascinatingly complex “entry-level” Gruner Veltliner and should drink well for at least 6-8 years."
