Wachau Panorama
2017 | Riesling Federspiel Dürnstein

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.

Grapes for the “Dürnstein“-wines 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
Bright clear yellow with green highlights; on the nose multi-layered and intensive aromas of stone fruit, typical Riesling aromatic; the intensive fruit aromas follow through on the palate, rich and juicy, white peach, the structure is elegant; subtle minerality and smoky character, well balanced due to a mouth-watering acidity and its tangy fruit.

How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled at about 9°C. A delicious, sophisticated food wine. Perfectly accompanies light fish dishes, soups, poultry, prosciutto, salads and a variety of vegetable dishes. Enjoy now or age for 2-3 years.
