Wachau Panorama

Great ratings from Parker & Suckling

Top accolades from respected wine critics: Robert Parker’s "The Wine Advocate" and James Suckling have given our wines great ratings.

Every year, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate gives its critical acclaim to the international wine scene; where also the Wachau plays a role.
The designated Robert Parker taster for Austrian wines is Stephan Reinhardt, who awarded our wines as follows:
2016 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Ried Kellerberg - 93 points
2016 Riesling Smaragd Ried Kellerberg - 93 points
2016 Riesling Smaragd Ried Singerriedel
“an exceptional Singerriedel” - 93 points
2016 Grüner Veltliner & Riesling Smaragd Ried Achleiten - 92 points

Pole position went to the 2015 Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese (TBA) Kellerberg with 98 Parker points, taking it to the pinnacle of the sweet wine world, on a par with Château d'Yquem 2014. Due to the small production, this vintage of our TBA has quickly sold out.

Parker rating system:
90 to 95 points: excellent
96 to 100 points: extraordinary

James Suckling is regarded as being also one of the most renowned wine critics. The former editor-in-chief of Wine Spectator has since been breaking new ground with his own internet tasting portal (JamesSuckling.com). The Austrian wines are rated by Stuart Pigott, who looks back on a wealth of experience as a wine critic.
The Domäne Wachau wines were scored as following:
2016 Riesling Smaragd Ried Achleiten - 94 points
2016 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Ried Achleiten - 93 points
2016 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Ried Axpoint - 92 points
