Wachau Panorama
2016 | Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Ried Kreuzberg

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 vineyards, a cool, marginal climate and meagre primary rock soils define the wines. “Federspiel” stands for dry, medium bodied and elegantly balanced wines of the Wachau.

Ried Kreuzberg
Kreuzberg is a single vineyard on the southern bank of the Danube river in Rossatz, which faces east and west due to its semi-circular form. The climate and soil of Kreuzberg are characterized by cold air streams from the Dunkelsteiner forest. The terroir is distinguished by a diverse para gneiss complex, amphibolite rocks and cool fall winds with great differences between day and night temperatures. The wines of Kreuzberg are extremely complex and very elegant.

Tasting Note
This wine is bright yellow with a youthful green glow. The distinctive aromas of Golden Delicious apple and white pepper, hints of quinces and delicate notes of dried herbs and exotic fruits set this wine apart. The body is medium, with a mouth-watering acidity, beautifully balanced by a juicy yet spicy finish. This is a delicious and classic example of a Grüner Veltliner from the Wachau.

How to enjoy best
This wine is a fruit-driven and racy Grüner Veltliner. Perfect for various social occasions. Serve well chilled at about 9°C. The wine perfectly accompanies poultry, salad, antipasti, soup and light-skinned meats. Drink within the first three years after bottling for maximum freshness.
