Wachau Panorama
2016 | Riesling Smaragd Classic

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

Wachau Classic
Grapes for Riesling Smaragd Classic are sourced from vineyards throughout the Wachau valley. A major part of the grapes are carefully hand-picked from vineyards surrounding the villages of Weissenkirchen, Spitz, Dürnstein, Rossatz-Arnsdorf and Mautern. The wine exhibits a very typical and consistent style of Riesling from Wachau with plenty of fruit.

Tasting Note
Medium, greenish yellow, powerful aromas of stone fruit, white peach, apricot and subtle hints of mango, on the palate a concentrated fruit expression with a juicy fruit core, beautiful balance of acidity and body, yet tight and elegant, a very charming Smaragd with great drinking pleasure!

How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled at about 10 °C. The wine perfectly accompanies a wide range of fish dishes, lobster and seafood as well as deep-fried dishes such as the famous “Wiener Schnitzel” or poultry dishes. Drink young to enjoy the intriguing fruit aromas or age for 3-5 years for complex, multi-layered aromatics.
