Wachau Panorama
2016 | Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Terrassen

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 vineyards, a cool, marginal climate and meagre primary rock soils define the wines. "Smaragd" stands for complex, full-bodied wines of the Wachau with aging potential.

Terrassen
The best grapes from different small terraced vineyards between Loiben and Spitz were hand-picked for this premium blend. The overall goal was to create a wine that reflects the typical Wachau wine style which is defined by the unique climate and primary rock soils.

Tasting Note
Brilliant, straw yellow; open and approachable on the nose, highlighted by ripe apple, white pepper and underlined by delicate citrus notes with a touch of tobacco, pear and quince; on the palate beautifully balanced with an expressive acidity which results in an elegant and powerful body, juicy exotic fruit flavors, plenty of spices and dry herbs dominate the palate that is long and full

How to enjoy best
Served well chilled directly from the fridge, Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Terrassen is a versatile companion. The wine perfectly accompanies grilled fish (even with creamy sauces), deep-fried dishes like the famous “Wiener Schnitzel”, the traditional Austrian “Tafelspitz” (beef pot-roast), but also grilled white meat such as chicken or veal. Drink now or age for 3-5 years.
