The Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Terrassen is a white wine produced by the Rudi Pichler winery in Wösendorf. The vineyards overlooking the Danube are located in the Wachau area of Austria. The 2018 vintage provides perfumes of minerality and smoky bits, expanding to lemon and yellow fruits when the wine warms up. The mouth is crisp with the full aroma palette (ripe pear, apricot) and medium finish.
