Wachau Panorama
2016 | Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Ried Achleiten

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 vineyards, a cool, marginal climate and meagre primary rock soils define the wines. „Smaragd“ stands for complex, full-bodied wines of the Wachau with aging potential.

Ried Achleiten
Achleiten is a legendary vineyard in the Wachau village of Weissenkirchen. It is famous for wines with inimitable mineral character. Dry stone walls dating back to the 12th century. The silicate-rich soil commands this vineyard’s landscape. On the upper terraces, gneiss is the prevailing subsoil, the lower terraces are dominated by dark, schistous amphibolites.

Tasting Note
This wine is bright golden yellow with golden-green highlights. The nose is pronounced with floral notes, white peach, quince and fresh herbs, white pepper; salty minerality. The body is juicy and concentrated. The delicate density and the subtle exotic notes are well balanced by its refreshing acidity; tantalizing vibrancy; and long mineral-driven finish.

How to enjoy best

Grüner Veltliner Achleiten is counted among the most age-worthy wines of the Wachau and of Domäne Wachau. Served well chilled at 10 °C, the wine perfectly accompanies roasts, pigeon and quail as well as matured cheese.
