Grüner Veltliner, Smaragd, “R”
Only produced in choice vintages, Fischer’s “R” is from a 75-year-old parcel of Grüner Veltliner in Kreuzberg—the oldest planting in the entire vineyard. This is both fermented and aged in wood—a single 1500-liter cask in which the wine spends two full years on its fine lees—and the resulting wine combines the lusciousness of the “Privat” with the diamond-cut precision and palate-staining minerality of the regular Kreuzberg bottling.

Though they show notable concentration, Fischer’s wines do not lead with power; rather, they are built around a tight helix of rapier-like acidity and intensely saline minerality, emphasizing kinetic thrust over sheer richness.Learn more
