Wachau Panorama
2016 | Riesling Smaragd Ried Kellerberg

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. „Smaragd“ stands for complex, full-bodied wines of the Wachau with aging potential.

Ried Kellerberg
The Kellerberg is Dürnstein’s steep landmark mountain, rising up right behind Domäne Wachau’s Kellerschlössel (baroque cellar castle). The vines root deeply into the light-coloured “Gföhler Gneiss“ which consists mainly of feldspar and quarz. Kellerberg is south-east facing with a somewhat cooler microclimate than the neighbouring Loibenberg. The wines from Kellerberg combine the pronounced mineral character of the Achleiten with the power and full body of the Loibenberg.

Tasting Note
The wine is medium yellow-green. There are expressive bouquets on the nose with notes of white peach, yellow stone fruit, orange zests, some mango and fresh wild herbs with a cool minerality. On the palate, the wine is concentrated and juicy, with lots of pressure, which maintains a lively fruit and great elegance. The finish is long-lasting and expressive; rounded off by ripe yellow apple, exotic fruits and a crisp acidity.

How to enjoy best
Serve chilled at about 10°C. Best enjoyed in the company of poultry dishes, veal and a wide range of fish dishes. A wine that is made for aging!
