Wachau Panorama
2015 | Pinot Noir Reserve

Origin: Austria - Wachau | Variety: Pinot Noir | 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.

Pinot Noir
Red wine grapes for this Pinot Noir were sourced from vineyards surrounding the wine village of Weissenkirchen, small lots were sourced from Rossatz-Arnsdorf and Mautern on the Danube’s south bank. In Weissenkirchen, the vines grow on lower stone-walled terrace slopes which are dominated by meagre primary rock soils. In Rossatz-Arnsdorf and Mautern, the vineyards are planted on loess soils with a high lime component.

Tasting Note
Medium ruby red with purple highlights. Open and multi-layered on the nose offering spicy liquorice, subtle hints of tobacco, black pepper and appealing fruit flavours of ripe sour cherries and red currant, hints of cloves, wild strawberry and nutmeg. In the mouth, the wine is quite firm and well-structured yet tight and elegant leading to an expressive finish. The silky tannins lend abundant drinking pleasure. Long and lingering finish.

How to enjoy best
This wine is a versatile food match: pasta, pizza or meat dishes – particularly veal or beef. We also recommend serving it with lamb or slightly more full-flavoured cheese. This wine can be enjoyed young but will also age well for 5-8 years. Ideal serving temperature is 19 °C (64 °F).
