Wachau Panorama
2016 | Neuburger Federspiel Spitzer Graben Sommelier-Edition

Origin: Austria - Wachau | Variety: Neuburger | 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.

Terrassen Spitz
Grapes from steep terraced vineyards from the „Spitzer Graben“ (a narrow valley leading up to the north), including famous single-vineyard sites such as Bruck, Setzberg, Trenning, Kalkofen and Brandstatt were carefully hand-picked for this wine. The extremely steep hills and the cool, marginal climate that is strongly influenced by cool air streams from the Waldviertel, one of Austrias coldest areas, define this wine. Migmatitic gneiss and some paragneiss, typical primary rock formations with thin layers of top soil, dominate this most western part of the Wachau valley.

Tasting Note
Brilliant bright yellow-green in colour; the aromas are complex on the nose giving notes of ripe yellow apple, quince, subtle hints of citrus fruit, almond, some muscat and fine spices. Powerful and classy on the palate, a very juicy fruit, balanced, refreshing wine with a good structure.

How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled at about 10°C. The particular elegance of this wine makes it very versatile with food. Perfect for hearty snacks but substantial enough to accompany the Austrian dishes such as the traditional “Tafelspitz“ (beef pot roast). Enjoy young or age for 3-5 years.
