"The Domane Wachau 2010 Gruner Veltliner Federspiel Terrassen displays juicy, faintly but attractively bitter character reminiscent of a lime-drizzled cucumber, cress, lettuce and dandelion salad. The finish here delightfully mingles refreshment with invigoration born of crunch, peppery bite, and piquancy. This excellent value introduction to its genre should be enjoyed over the next couple of years.
Roman Horvath and Heinz Frischengruber have in recent vintages brought the Wachau’s remaining coop back to habits of excellence such as prevailed in the late 1990s and (under the direction of Fritz Miesbauer and Rainer Wess) through 2002. A vintage like 2010 is inevitably difficult for an organization dealing with a vast number of small growers; yet fine quality and outstanding consistency were achieved in this instance. No serious picking got started until the second half of October, and many wines were harvested in early November. De-acidification was employed largely in the Federspiel range, yet in Gruner Veltliner at least, that part of the collection was especially strong. Frischengruber extended skin contact a bit to ameliorate acids, and this probably also contributed to the pronounced piquancy of so many of the coop’s 2010s. In what might superficially seem a reversal of market trends, the Freie Weingartner have decided to eliminate the production of bulk wine and essentially their line-up begins now with those wines labeled in recent years as “Domane Wachau” that have always been the focus in my reports. Bulk prices – at least, for genuine Wachau fruit – had risen to the point, says Horvath, where it made no sense to give chase to the marketplace’s many inexpensive emerging brands of Gruner Veltliner that are sourced primarily from the Weinviertel."
