Wachau Panorama
2016 | Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Ried Kollmitz

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.

Ried Kollmitz
Kollmitz is a single-vineyard in the Wachau village of Joching. The first records of this prime vineyard site date back to 1151 when it was originally called “Cholmunz”. Kollmitz is known for the vines planted directly on slopes that were carved directly into the deep loess soil without any supportive mounting. Grüner Veltliner thrives and prospers extremely well on this mix of loess and brown slate. The wines are particularly spicy and display a high level of elegance. Kollmitz reaches up to approximately 130 metres above the Danube.

Tasting Note
The wine is bright yellow with a youthful green glow. Aromas have a distinctive core of ripe quince and apple blossom and hints of stone fruit. The rich texture is well balanced by the juicy yet lively acidity. This wine is very elegant with a long and round finish; a delicious and classic example of a Grüner Veltliner from the Wachau.

How to enjoy best
This wine is a fruit-driven and intriguing Grüner Veltliner - appropriate for many social occasions. Serve well chilled at about 9 °C. The wine perfectly accompanies poultry, salad, antipasti, soup, and goat and sheep milk cheese. Drink within the first three years after bottling for maximum freshness.
