Wachau Panorama
2016 | Riesling Smaragd Terrassen

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.

Terrassen
Grapes for Riesling Smaragd Terrassen were carefully handpicked from small terraced vineyard plots throughout the Wachau valley. Focus in the vinification of this wine is not on the unique terroir of a specific site but rather on offering a consistent and representative Wachau wine style with a pronounced fruit character, elegance and minerality. Riesling grapes from Loiben contribute weight, Weissenkirchen adds balance and grapes from Spitz and Viessling are responsible for the impressive finesse of the wine.

Tasting Note
This wine is bright yellow-green. There are aromas of stone fruit, ripe peach, apricot and subtle hints of mango round of out nose. This rich and energetic palate has expressive fruit that is also very delightful, neatly balanced and elegant. This wine is charming; a very pleasant Smaragd with a long lingering finish.

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”. Drink young to enjoy the intriguing fruit aromas or age for 3-5 years for complex, multi-layered aromas.
