Wachau Panorama
2016 | Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Weissenkirchen

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.

Weissenkirchen
The grapes for the Weissenkirchen-wines are sourced from vineyards surrounding the commune of Weissenkirchen. This commune includes, besides Weissenkirchen itself, the Wachau villages of Joching, Wösendorf and St. Michael. The wines display the uniquely elegant and mineral style that is typical for this part of the Wachau. Vineyards include premium sites such as Achleiten, Klaus, Kollmütz and Weitenberg.

Tasting Note
This wine has a brilliant yellow-green colour. The nose expresses delicate citrus notes, elegant spices, white pepper, blueberries and dried herbs. This medium bodied wine is very fruit-driven and harmonious with a fresh crisp acidity. This wine is a classic Federspiel from Grüner Veltliner!

How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled at 9°C. Drink now or store to mature for 2-3 years. This wine perfectly accompanies the traditional Austrian cuisine such as “Wiener Schnitzel” as well as poultry, fish and vegetables.
