DOMANE WACHAU TERRASSEN GRUNER VELTLINER FEDERSPIEL
In the coolest wine growing region in Austria and on terraces that look down upon the famous Danube river, Domaine Wachau makes its home. The precipitously steep vineyards are stitched together by dry stone walls and it is amongst this challenging, yet beautiful, environment that Roman Horvath MW and oenologist Heinz Frischengruber work their magic. The strong diurnal changes of temperature coupled with the mineral rich soils all play their part in making this ideal territory for Gruner Veltliner and Riesling. Turning a cooperative winery with great potential into a winery that is model for sustainable winemakers the world over, the Wachau team not only have an inspirational landscape in which to work, but are at the heart of a winery which is an inspiration for so many others.
Chosen for their specific microclimate and meagre primary rock soils, the vineyard sites for Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Terrassen were carefully hand-picked from steeply terraced vineyards throughout the Wachau valley. It exhibits a very typical and consistent style of Grüner Veltliner from Wachau characterized by fresh fruit and a pronounced minerality.
Gentle pressing, sedimentation overnight, and temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel define the vinification process. A moderate reductive treatment guarantees a fresh and fruity, yet well structured wine.
Fresh, fruity and youthful. Classic Grüner with aromas of white pepper and grapefruit. From wine makers that concentrate on quality at all times you can be sure thats exactly what you will receive with this fine bottle of wine. A perfect accompaniment to the traditional Austrian cuisine such as the famous “Wiener Schnitzel” as well as fish, seafood and poultry.
