Wachau Panorama
2016 | Riesling Ried Federspiel Steinriegl

Origin: Austria - Wachau | Variety: Riesling | 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. “Federspiel” stands for dry, medium bodied and elegantly balanced wines of the Wachau.

Ried Steinriegl
Steinriegl is a southwest-facing steep vineyard in the wine-growing village of Weissenkirchen. The terroir is characterized by its proximity to the forest, the cool terraces and the rich lime silicate soils. The wines offer a firm texture, elegance and appealing flavours.

Tasting Note
Lively yellow with green reflections; dense and intensive on the nose, an abundance of stone fruits, peach, apricot, subtle hints of mediterranean spices and elderflower; the flavours follow through on the palate, very multi-layered, the mouth-watering acidity is beautifully balanced by the flavourful fruit; a very elegant Riesling with character and strength.

How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled at about 9 °C. Riesling Federspiel is a classic accompaniment to a wide range of fish, poultry and vegetable dishes or may be enjoyed as a sophisticated summer wine.
