Wachau Panorama
2016 | Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Ried 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.

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

Tasting Note
This wine is a brilliant yellow-green. The nose has subtle hints of spicy tobacco, ripe delicious apple, apricot, white peach and hints of mango and physalis. The dense fruit flavors on the palate and smoky-saltiness all translate into structure and length.

How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled at about 9°C. Drink now or store for two or three years. This wine perfectly accompanies a variety of cheeses, ”Wiener Schnitzel” or ”Tafelspitz” - the classic Austrian beef pot roast.
