Wachau Panorama
2016 | Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Ried Liebenberg

Origin: Austria - Wachau | Variety: Grüner Veltliner | Producer: Domäne Wachau

Domäne Wachau is one of Austria’s most renowned wineries, based in Austria’s most prestigious wine growing region, the Wachau. Steep terraced yineyards, a cool, marginal climate and meagre primary rock soils define the wines. “Federspiel” stands for dry, medium bodied and elegantly balanced wines of the Wachau.

Ried Liebenberg
The history of the vineyard Liebenberg dates back to the 14th century. Early records mention “lieb’nperig”, which later became “Liebenberg”. The views of this south- and southwest facing site are lined by stone-walls. Liebenberg is situated in the western part of Dürnstein and has rather cooler influences compared to for example Kellerberg. Liebenberg is one of the most fascinating vineyards in the Wachau, various forms of paragneiss represent the parent rock for the soils. Dark amphibolite outcrops are scattered everywhere, and amphibolite is also found in the stone walls. Due to its meagre terrain, the wines are characterized by elegance and subtle minerality.

Tasting Note
Bright greenish yellow; the wine shows hints of golden delicious apple, spicy notes of white pepper, white peach and subtle hints of exotic fruit; the palate is pronounced with a salty character, juicy fruit and lively acidity that complement the long lasting and powerful mouthfeel.

How to enjoy best
Serve chilled at about 9 °C. Drink and now or store for two or three years. This wine pairs well with the traditional Austrian cuisine, spicy Asian-inspired dishes and a range of cheeses.
