Wine Advocate 88 points - Lemon and lime rinds figure so prominently in Pichler’s 2012 Riesling Smaragd Terrassen that its nose-wrinkling aromas and bitterness are a bit off-putting. Pungent herbs stimulate in a manner consistent with the aggressively piquant personality of this firm, full bottling, and in conjunction with citrus and stone serve for an undeniable degree of complexity. A lick of salt offers welcome saliva-inducement; but this is strict, rather brusquely finishing stuff that I would not feel confident in following other than with close monitoring. (Apr 2014)

Wine maker notes
Old terraces of varied altitudes and orientations and with primitive rock soils make this wine an elegant culinary accompaniment - with its delicate structure, white peach aroma and subtle slate tone.

Producer
It was his first taste of top Rhone bottlings that inspired Rudi Schultz, winemaker at the heralded Thelema Mountain Vineyards, to pursue a winemaking career. So when he decided to create an eponymous label, Syrah was the natural varietal of choice. Grapes for Schultz’s dazzling bottling are sourced from a vineyard in the Bottelary Hills ward of Stellenbosch and vinified at Thelema. Hailed as a “small production gem” and a “delicious fruit-driven Syrah” that “maintain[s] a sense of freshness and minerality,” the wine has earned a 90+ Wine Spectator rave in every vintage since its 2002 debut.
