Wachau Panorama
Riesling Amphora 2018

Origin: Austria - Wachau | Variety: Riesling | 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.

“Natural” vinification and unique fermentation vessels set Riesling Amphora outside of the classic Wachau wine categories Steinfeder, Federspiel and Smaragd. Riesling Amphora is officially classified as “Wine from Austria” with indication of variety and vintage.

Tasting Note

Delicately hazy golden colour with bronze highlights. Intense and open on the nose: subtle notes of beeswax, honeydew melon, biscuit and rich tropical fruit flavours integrate well with tertiary aromas of cloves and cedar. On the palate this wine is very deep and complex. Fine tannins and crisp acidity are accompanied by notes of caramel, subtle hints of marzipan, tropical fruits and dark chocolate. This wine is dense, compact, complex and extremely long on the finish.

How to enjoy best
Serve chilled but not too cold, at around 14°C. Riesling Amphora offers a very unique and exceptional tasting experience. A “philosopher’s wine“, best enjoyed on its own.
