Wachau Panorama
2016 | Zweigelt Rosé Federspiel Himmelstiege

Origin: Austria - Wachau | Variety: Zweigelt | 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
The 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
Bright shining red pink; delicate aromas of cranberry, red cherries and strawberry, hints of citrus, star anise and baking spiciness; medium bodied, the palate is fruity yet balanced with a refreshing acidity. Great drinking pleasure!

How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled at about 8°C, directly from the fridge. Drink within the first two years after bottling for maximum freshness. A wonderful summer wine, that perfectly accompanies salads, antipasti and BBQs.
