Wachau Panorama
2016 | Riesling Smaragd Ried Singerriedel

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 Singerriedel
Singerriedel is a wind-shielded, steeply terraced vineyard at the eastern end of Spitz. It is considered to be among the best vineyard sites in the Wachau. The stony soil conserves the heat from the warm temperatures until late in the evening. The old, weathered gneiss soil is covered by a thin layer of silicate-rich brown earth. Singerriedel is famous for ripe, concentrated Rieslings with stone-fruit aromas and pronounced mineral character.

Tasting Note
This wine is bright golden yellow with subtle silver highlights. The aromas offer elegant hints of white tropical fruits, delicate peach, melon, hints of pineapple and subtle notes of wild herbs. On the palate, there is delicate citrus, juicy, smoky but tight, structured and a vibrant mineral character. This wine is long-lasting and full of finesse!

How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled at 10°C. Riesling Smaragd is a classic accompaniment to fish dishes and seafood as well as a variety of vegetable dishes. This wine is very approachable in its youth but also age-worthy.
