    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.
    This wine offers distinctive aromas of green apple, white pepper, faint hints of mango, balanced with delicate herbal notes. Near perfect dry white - fresh and intersting. This Federspiel is a traditional example of Grüner Veltliner with its medium-body crisp acidity, juicy fruits and white spice on the finish.

    Producer

    Domäne Wachau strives for quality without compromise both in the vineyard and in the cellar. Together with significantly improved cooperation with grape growers and a competently employed vineyard quality assurance program, gentle vinification technique guarantee wines of precise and clear expression.

    All of the Domäne Wachau wines and in particular the “Terrassen” and single-vineyard wines are never heady alcohol-laden wines, but fruity wines with firm mineral structure that have been highly influenced by primary rock soils. Finesse, not voluptuous body, is in the foreground and these wines offer tremendous drinking pleasure and fascinating elegance as accompaniment to food.

    Domäne Wachau strives for authentic regional character in their wines. The Wachau and its marvellous vineyards should find precise definition and clear expression. Essential is persistent, stable fruit and mineral character that continue with extended bottle ageing and mature into complex secondary aromas in our top wines. The superb ageing capability of selected Smaragd wines and their fascinating development in the bottle is an explicit goal in the winemaking.

    A core goal of the cooperative is the achievement of fair grape prices for the numerous growers that labour under the difficult conditions in the Wachau. Not only the hard work in the steep terraces, but also measures for preserving their cultural landscape should be rewarded.

    Green apple, a little white pepper and herb, sour mango. Juicy, big burst of green apple and spice, fine powdery texture, light acid crunch with a yeasty weightiness, good finish. Wholly satisfying and classic expression of Grüner. I’m having a nice little glass of it now.
