2015 Riesling, Federspiel

Deeply rooted in the Wachau region, Domäne Wachau has close to 440 hectares of vineyards cultivated by the members of this quality-oriented cooperative. That makes up 30 percent of the entire Wachau vineyard area. The Danube river flows through the stunning Wachau Valley which is the coolest wine growing region of Austria. The combination of warm days, cool nights and ancient rocky soils create wines of precision, minerality and fantastic purity of fruit. Steep, terraced vineyards hug the Danube which moderates the continental climate, preserving vital flavour and acidity in the grapes. Loess and Gneiss soils give high levels of minerality and extract.

Crystal clear and straw-yellow with green highlights. Pronounced on the nose this wine displays ripe stone fruit, delicate citrus, and hints of exotic fruit. On the palate there are flavours of juicy white peach and subtle hints of lychee. This wine is well balanced by a refined structure, very fresh, crisp and plush acidity.
