93 Pts Wine Enthusiast
"A delicately nutty oak influence marries the fresh pear and citrus fruit of this concentrated wine. Right now this is precise and citrus-focused but some cellaring should bring out its mellower, fruitier side. Drink as of 2016." March 2015.

"Apricot pit, ginger and acacia honey on the floral nose. Supple and lush, offering an impression of saline extract to the flavors of yellow stone fruits. Rich, dry and nicely balanced, this Pinot Blanc shows both tension and density. The 2013 Leithaberg is essentially an old-vine selection from the Seeberg site. Drink 2015 - 2020." February 2015
"The Prieler estate, in Schutzen on the western side of the Lake Neusiedl, is a historic old farm, once dedicated to many types of agriculture but now specializing in grape growing. Two generations of the Prieler family now run the estate: Engelbert and Irmgard, who in 1972 focused the estate on quality production of several grape varieties, mainly blaufrankisch and Burgundian varieties, and their children Georg and Silvia, who began working at the estate in 1998.
"Prielerâs 20 hectares are currently cultivated in vineyards between the Leithagebirge, the last outpost of the eastern Alps that protect the vines from the western winds, and the Lake Neusiedl, which tempers the hot climate of the Pannonian plain. Basking in 2000 hours of sunshine annually, North Burgenland is the sunniest region in all of central Europe, with far below average rain fall. Soils vary dramatically in this area around the Schutzen Stein....
"The Prielers focus on blaufrankisch as well as Burgundian varieties such as chardonnay, pinot blanc, and pinot noir, which have a long history of cultivation in this part of Burgenland. The area around Vienna was cultivated by Cistercian and Franciscan monks, who founded monasteries along the Danube and brought these varieties from France and Germany. Silvia Prieler, with a PhD in biochemistry, brings international experience to the cellar including an interim at Domaine Dujac in Burgundy. In the vineyards, the Prielers prune rigorously, plant cover crops and pay meticulous attention to canopy management as their region receives so much sunlight. They make multiple, careful selections during harvest in order to control alcohol while still achieving physiological ripeness.
"The grapes are carefully crushed and fermented at closely controlled temperatures in steel tanks or wooden casks. The character of the variety and the vineyard determines where the wine will mature. For example, the Seeberg pinot blanc will remain in stainless steel to maximize freshness and clarity, the blaufrankisch from JohanneshÃ¶he will be raised in large oak casks, and top crus like Goldberg will mature in barrique. The Prielerâs meticulous work in the vineyard and in the cellar has earned them awards from Falstaff Magazine (2009 âVintner of the Yearâ), Vinaria Magazine (âBest wines of Austriaâ 2012/2013) and was among Jancis Robinsonâs top picks for Austrian red wines. Peter Moser, editor-in-chief of Falstaff wrote, âWe were extremely impressed by the Prieler familyâs high standards in all wine categories and by their sensitive approach to the specific properties of the respective types of vine and the selection of just the right terroir.â" - Distributor
