Wachau Panorama
2018 | Grüner Veltliner V.D.N

Origin: Austria - Wachau | Variety: Grüner Veltliner | 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.

Grüner Veltliner in a different way. Our homage to the versatility of the grape variety: Grüner Veltliner fortified with Grüner Veltliner brandy from the Wachau. V.D.N. stands for “Veltliner Doux Naturel” in the style of the southern French Vin Doux Naturel. The grapes were hand-picked from the single-vineyard Kirnberg in Rossatz, on the Danube’s dynamic south bank.

Tasting Note
Medium green-yellow with high viscosity; on the nose very open and accessible, warm fruit aromas, stewed apple, juniper, ripe peach, dried herbs, intense dark spices, smoky tobacco notes, some dark chocolate, hints of salty caramel, very complex; punchy and tight on the palate, full-bodied and elegant, lots of spices, balanced sweetness with a refreshing acidity and very typical for the grape variety; very long-lasting

How to enjoy best
Ideally enjoyed at about 10 °C, V.D.N. is a perfect aperitif, but also an excellent after dinner drink. It is a sophisticated accompaniment for matured cheeses or rich pâtés for an unforgettable food-matching experience. Try with desserts where this special wine will shine as a characterful matching-partner as well. Grüner Veltliner V.D.N. is already very approachable in its youth, but has tremendous aging potential.
