Wachau Panorama
2017 | Grüner Veltliner Steinfeder Ried Hochrain

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. „Steinfeder“ stands for dry, very light and fruit-driven wines of the Wachau.

Ried Hochrain
Hochrain is a single-vineyard in Wösendorf. It is exactly south facing and situated at the bottom of the hill that separates the villages St. Michael and Wösendorf. The site yields fresh, delicately spicy Veltliners. Deep, weathered gneiss with sandy loess top soil accumulate the warm temperatures and enable an early ripening while retaining the tangy, light character.

Tasting Note
Lively straw yellow with a green glow on appearance; on the nose fresh citrus aromas, juicy green apple, subtle spicy notes and hints of hay and white pepper ; on the palate very succulent and fresh, beautifully balanced with elegant fruit flavours and a refreshing acidity; a classic example of a Steinfeder.

How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled at about 8°C. A perfect accompaniment to the classical Austrian cuisine as well as casseroles, pasta dishes, deep fried dishes and hearty snacks. Drink young, within the first 1-2 years after bottling for maximum freshness.
