Wachau Panorama
2016 | Grüner Veltliner Smaragd 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 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.

Dürnstein
Grapes for the “Dürnstein”- wines (one of Domäne Wachau’s “village”- bottlings) 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
Clear and bright greenish yellow; intense and playful aromas, offers ripe apple, physalis, and subtle hints of pepper spices in the background, some mango; on the palate expressive and rich with juicy fruit flavours and a refreshing acidity which results in a beautifully balanced wine; very long-lasting.

How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled, ideally directly from the fridge. Perfectly accompanies fish in creamy sauces, deep-fried meats, the traditional Austrian “Tafelspitz” (beef pot roast) and light meats like chicken or veal. Drink now or age for at least 3-5 years.
