Wachau Panorama
2013 | Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Pichlpoint

Origin: Austria - Wachau | Variety: Grüner Veltliner | 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 ageing potential.

The highly appraised single-vineyard „Pichlpoint“ can be found right in the heart of the Wachau in Joching. The name „Point“ is derived from the ancient name for a bordered plot of land, similar to the „Clos“ in Burgundy. The soil at Pichlpoint is determined by a considerable amount of loess on top of the mother rock. Pichlpoint yields particularly fruity and elegant wines with a characteristic depth and concentration on the palate.

Tasting Note
Crystal clear green yellow with subtle golden highlights; open and complex with intense fruit flavors, pear, deep spice, tobacco; dense and creamy on the palate with a racy acidity and a strong texture. A typical Grüner Veltliner with impressive structure and a long and spicy finish.

How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled directly from the fridge. The wine perfectly accompanies fish, deep-fried dishes as well as savoury meat dishes and grilled meat. Already very approachable with an ageing potential of at least 4-8 years.
