Wachau Panorama
2014 | Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Loibenberg

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.

Loibenberg is one of the „Grand Crus“ of Austria. The ancient dry stone walls dating back to the 14th century reach up to 420 m above sea level. The soil is dominated by weathered primary-rock, the so called „Gföhler Gneiss“, with layers of loess and loam in some areas. Warm pannonian airstreams make Loibenberg the „hotplate“ of the Wachau. Stretching out over more than 20 hectares, the Loibenberg is the Wachau’s biggest single vineyard and famous for its diversified microclimate. 

Tasting Note
Brilliant greenish yellow; pronounced with open fruit in the bouquet, subtle spiciness, smoky aromas, golden delicious apple, stone fruit and juicy exotic; dense fruit flavors on the palate, smoky-salty, punchy and creamy, elegant with a good balance of fruit and acidity, some tobacco and hints of tropical fruit add complexity, with good structure and length

How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled at about 9°C. Drink now or store to mature for two or three years. Perfectly accompanies the traditional Austrian cuisine, e.g. the famous “Wiener Schnitzel” or “Tafelspitz” - the classic Austrian beef pot roast. A very versatile accompaniment to many types of cheese.
