Wachau Panorama
2016 | Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Ried Pichlpoint

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 Pichlpoint
The highly appraised single-vineyard (Ried) “Pichlpoint” can be found right in the heart of the Wachau in Joching. The name “Point” is derived from the ancient name for a bordered plot of land, similar to the “Clos” in Burgundy. The soil at Pichlpoint is made up of loess on top of the mother rock. Pichlpoint yields particularly fruity and elegant wines with a characteristic depth and concentration on the palate.

Tasting Note
The wine is bright yellow-green. The nose is intense with Granny Smith apple, hints of passion-fruit, quince and white peach. The palate is filled with delicate spices, with a lively acidity. The finish is long-lasting with a salty mineral finish. This wine is a great example of high-quality Grüner Veltliner.

How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled at about 9 C°. Perfectly accompanies dishes such as fried fish, baked and cooked beef as well as typical Austrian cuisine. The structure promises a stable development for another two to three years.
