The soils of Ried Kollmütz developed out of the Wösendorf Slide Mass, from severely weathered crystalline rock called paragneiss. Paragneiss was formed from metamorphosed sediments, created under extreme conditions of increased pressure and heat during the Variscan orogeny, becoming exposed once more after extensive erosion of the erstwhile mountain range. The paragneisses of the Wachau are several hundred million years old and are distinguished by their multifacetted mineral constituents.

The slumping process of the slide mass itself is dated by geologists to the Egerian Period (ca. 20–25 million years ago). The sandy and calcareous soils of the Kollmütz are particularly rich in iron, manganese and magnesium.

Rated 91 by Wine Advocate

From impressive terraces on deep, strongly decomposed crystalline rocks (paragneiss), Pichler's 2016 Ried Kollmütz Grüner Veltliner Smaragd shows very deep, clear, intense and perfectly ripe fruit intertwined with the precision and flinty aroma of the crystalline soils in the bouquet. Full-bodied, clear and highly elegant on the palate, this is a rich and intense but also pure, fresh and perfectly balanced Grüner Veltliner with a sweet and salty-piquant finish. The wine is really intense, but not broad at all. Its mineral structure and fresh acidity is crystalline, and the wine is much more vertical on the palate than horizontal. The finish is juicy, intense and wonderfully fruity, but always in balance, with no hints of alcohol or anything out of balance. Gorgeous.
