Wachau Panorama
2016 | Roter Traminer Reserve Ried Setzberg

Origin: Austria - Wachau | Variety: Roter Traminer | 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.

Ried Setzberg
Setzberg is a prime vineyard in the Wachau village of Spitz. It is situated right at the entry to the famous “Spitzer Graben“. This valley leads north to the Waldviertel - one of the coolest parts of Austria. The soil is extremely poor and mainly consists of gneiss with only a thin layer of top soil. Cool air streams from the Spitzer Graben result in considerable fluctuations between day and night temperature and poor soil, yield wines with unique character and elegance.

Tasting notes
This wine is bright yellow-green with a faint copper tinge tint. The aromas are of rose petals, blossom honey, jasmine flowers, baked pears, cloves, white peach and nutmeg. The palate is spicy and lively with a strong, yet elegant body. The finish is long and well integrated with fruit sweetness and hints of elderberry blossoms and wild roses. A wine that is full in style and complex, yet with a high level of elegance.

How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled at about 10°C. This unique wine perfectly accompanies the spicy Asian cuisine as well as game paté, spicy ragouts and savoury poultry dishes. Enjoy “solo“ for a unique flavour experience.
