Wachau Panorama
2017 | Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Dürnstein

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. „Federspiel“ stands for dry, medium bodied and elegantly balanced wines of the Wachau.

Dürnstein
Grapes for the „Dürnstein“-wines are sourced from steep terraced vineyards surrounding the villages of Dürnstein and Loiben. The unique combination of warm Pannonian air masses and the poor primary rock soils in this part of the Wachau valley yields distinctive wines with powerful elegance.

Tasting Note
Bright clear yellow-green; on the nose distinctive and concentrated with intense aromas of yellow apples and hints of exotic notes, elegant spicy notes, white pepper and white peach; multi-layered on the palate with juicy fruit flavours and a salty minerality, lively with a refreshing acidity; smoky tobacco spices on the finish.

How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled at 9°C. Enjoyable and pleasant already in its youth with enough body to improve over the medium term (2-3 years). Match with the traditional Austrian cuisine such as Wiener Schnitzel or beef pot roast. A classic accompaniment for savoury home-cooking dishes and many types of cheese.
