Wachau Panorama
2017 | Riesling Federspiel Himmelstiege

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.

Himmelstiege
Himmelstiege was originally a steep terraced vineyard in Dürnstein and a popular wine for decades. Nowadays, the grapes come from terraced vineyards, partially supported by dry stone walls and vineyards along the Danube, mainly from Dürnstein and Loiben. The poor soil in the vineyards and their special exposition yield very typical Wachau wines with pronounced fruit aromas and a unique mineral character.

Tasting Note
The wine is medium straw-yellow with delicate green highlights; offering pronounced fruit aromas and hints of exotic notes; concentrated stone-fruit flavours on the palate, elegant structure, and fresh with hints of wet slate. A classic example of Riesling Federspiel with a precise structure and good length!

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