Wachau Panorama

Our 2018 single-vineyard Smaragd wines are out now

Singerriedel, Achleiten, Kellerberg and other single-vineyard Smaragd wines are now released: highly focused and delicately spicy – a classic Wachau vintage with structure, elegance and depth.

Since the beginning of August, our single-vineyard Smaragd wines are available and tell their story of the 2018 vintage. 2018 was one of the hottest and most extreme summers, yet the wines display vitality and freshness. We would call it a “classic, balanced vintage”, as this corresponds to a cooler vintage style.

Compared to 2017, the alcohol levels are marginally lower, the acidity for Riesling is remarkably lively for such a hot summer. The final stage of ripening was slow and due to very early flowering, we had a long growing season. This naturally favoured continuous aroma development and promoted balance between acidity and sugar levels in the grape. All in all, the wines could be described as firm and elegant, combining a distinct and sappy texture with a crystal-clear aroma and complexity.
