Domäne Wachau Terrassen Federspiel Grüner Veltliner 2017 (Wachau, Austria) "...exotic, herbal, spicy..."
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.
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.

"Fresh Conference pear notes abound on the nose of this wine. The palate is sprightly and fresh, with a zestier core of lime and pear peel. Slender in frame, it dances on the palate, displaying seriousness and levity at the same time. The finish is totally refreshing." 90 Pts - Wine Enthusiast
"Bright yellow-green in colour, this wine offers distinctive aromas of golden delicious apple, white pepper, hints of exotic fruits, balanced with delicate herbal notes. This Federspiel is a traditional example of Grüner Veltliner with its medium-body crisp acidity, juicy fruits and white spice on the finish." - Producer
