Wachau Panorama
2018 | Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Classic

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. Smaragd is the top category of Wachau wines. The name Smaragd was derived from the magnificent emerald green lizard that can be found basking in hot and sunny spots in the vineyards.

Wachau Classic
Grapes for Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Classic are sourced from vineyards throughout the Wachau valley. A major part of the grapes are carefully hand-picked from vineyards surrounding the villages of Weissenkirchen, Spitz, Dürnstein, Rossatz-Arnsdorf and Mautern. The wine exhibits a very typical style of Grüner Veltliner from Wachau with plenty of fruit.

Tasting Note
Brilliant bright straw yellow; pronounced and inviting on the nose with a bouquet reminiscent of ripe apple, white pepper, subtle hints of citrus and hints of mango; on the palate well balanced with a delicate freshness, a crisp acidity and an elegant body; juicy fruit nuances, spicy undertones and a wonderful length.

How to enjoy best
Served well chilled directly from the fridge, Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Classic is a versatile companion. The wine perfectly accompanies grilled fish (even with creamy sauces), deep-fried dishes like the famous “Wiener Schnitzel”, the traditional Austrian “Tafelspitz” (beef pot-roast), but also grilled white meat such as chicken or veal. Drink now or age for 3-5 years.
