Wachau Panorama
2016 | Riesling Federspiel Ried 1000-Eimer-Berg

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 yineyards, a cool, marginal climate and meagre primary rock soils define the wines. “Federspiel” stands for dry, medium bodied and elegantly balanced wines of the Wachau.

Ried 1000-Eimer-Berg
The 1000-Eimer-Berg, a sub-vineyard of Burgberg, is a striking elevation in the Wachau village of Spitz and also the village’s impressive landmark. The extremely steep stone terraces with their weathered crystalline top soil on the paleozoic gneiss are south-east facing. A permanent circulation of cool air is responsible for the particular elegance, the crisp acidity and the fine stonefruit aromas of Rieslings from 1000-Eimer-Berg. The name “1000-Eimer-Berg” is derived from the ancient word “Eimer”, a storage vessel for wine and must. One “Eimer” could hold 56 litres of wine.

Tasting notes
The wine is a lively yellow colour with a green glow. A striking cool-climate style, the wine has distinctive flavours of stone fruits, quince, white peach and hints of elder flowers. The fruity palate is beautifully balanced with a long lasting mouthfeel and freshness due to a zesty acidity which all translate a great drinkability.

How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled at about 9 °C. Riesling Federspiel is a classic with a wide range of fish dishes. It perfectly accompanies vegetable dishes and poultry or serves well “solo” as a sophisticated summer wine.
