ABOUT:This family run estate in the Austrian village of Sch├╝tzen has been turning heads for the last two decades with their impeccably created white and red wines. Situated on a sunny, limestone rich slope on the western side of the Lake Neusiedl is the Prieler Vineyard called Seeberg, home to their famous Pinot Blanc. Meticulous work in the vineyard (natural pest management, rigorous pruning, multiple tries) and in the winery (multiple sorting, pied de cuve) has won them accolades from many respected wine journalists. The youngest, Georg, has begun the conversion from organic viticulture to biodynamics and I suspect the quality of the future wines from Prieler will be off the chart.

TASTE: The 2012 Pinot Blanc, as with most other vintages of this wine has rich, waxy citrus aromas and flavors, bits of almond and honeydew melon with lifted floral notes like lilac, jasmine, roses. Pinot Blanc can often have low-ish acidity which leads to flabbiness, but not here. This wine has a solid little thunderbolt of acidity which persists through the long finish, adding to its rating of high complexity. The 2012 tastes really good in 2017 and has just hints of development which leads me to believe this wine will develop for another 10-15 years.

PAIR: Eggs, soft cheeses, sour cream and onion potato chips, roasted root vegetables, and is a perfect fit for Thai food, especially the dish Pad See Ew.
