Wachau Panorama

VINUM: Two-fold victory for Achleiten

Critics of the Swiss wine magazine VINUM carefully tasted this year’s vintage from dozens Wachau single vineyards. Our two Smaragd wines from Ried Achleiten achieved excellent rankings in two categories!

All the well-known Wachau estates were part of the highly representative tasting, where 200 wines from the best sites between Spitz and Loiben were tasted and rated. With very high standards in general, VINUM noted how the area´s wines had moved toward a more elegant and vibrant style from an original rather smooth and heavy character. 

In the Riesling category the Smaragd Achleiten 2018 shares the first place among Smaragd Singerriedel from the Hirtzberger estate, both with 18.5 points

Another of our wines finished top in the Grüner Veltliner category: our Smaragd from Weissenkirchen’s best site, Achleiten, earned 18.5 points to place just above Ried Loibenberg by Emmerich Knoll.
