Pear, cantaloupe and winter squash created sweet earthy suggestions in the nose and on the plush palate of Pichlers’ 2012 Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Loibenberg, to which a dash of white pepper adds sizzling and unexpected counterpoint in a long, energetic finish. Here is a wine at once soothing and stimulating, its luscious fruit and incisive cut mutually complementary. “In cool years,” notes Lucas Pichler, “the Loibenberg is going to be ahead by a nose, while in warm years it will be Steinertal.” I would plan on following this through 2020.
