Utterly Singular: 2017 F.X. Pichler Riesling "Unendlich"

Posted by Joe Salamone

F.X. Pichler's "Unendlich" is one of the most extraordinary bottles of Riesling out there.

It's very hard to imagine a bottle of Riesling that combines intensity, clarity and tension in a similar way.

You probably won't be surprised that "Unendlich" is one of the hardest bottles of Riesling to locate. Finding "Unendlich" in quantity can feel next to impossible. Production is very small, and it's a bottle that people hunt down.

"Unendlich" translates to "never-ending" - a reference to the unimaginable length of this wine. If F.X. Pichler's Riesling Kellerberg is the most finessed, most mineral expression in the stable, the "Unendlich" adds flesh and layered depth to this same focus and super-fine elegance.

The 2017 vintage really emphasizes Pichler's ability to deliver power with finesse and detail. Pichler's 2017s are layered, rivetingly pure and focused. As always, the lineup reaches its absolute high point with the "Unendlich".

The 2017 "Unendlich" has a profound mineral-driven length. It has a radiant grandeur that's incredibly impressive. The 2017 is a particularly pristine and penetratingly complex vintage of the wine.

Pichler's "Unendlich" is a singular Riesling, and one that has no trouble competing on the world stage. It's a wine that seems to appear and then, quickly disappear from availability. Our parcel is very modest and we don't expect it to stick around for long.
