Features and technical details
Cellar for up to 30 years. Decant up to 30 minutes before serving, according to preference. Under the guidance of Roman Horvath MW and Heinz Frischengruber, Domäne Wachau have made a name for themselves along the length of the Austrian Danube. From the vineyard plots that line the river's banks, they produce a stunning range of wines that reflect the Wachau region perfectly. Vintner families take care of the vineyards by hand, exerting the winery's approach of minimal intervention. Many of the plots are known across the world, including Achleiten, Singerriedel and Kellerberg, the origin of this beautiful dry white. Green apples and oranges reveal themselves on the nose, with youthful notes of spice and pepper. The Grüner Veltliner grapes for this wine are all sourced from Kellerberg, one of Wachau’s greatest vineyards, located on steep terraces right behind Domäne Wachau’s winery. The soils of Kellerberg are stony, composed of Gföhl gneiss and deposits of loess, resulting in denser wines. This dry white is perfectly balanced however, with a delightful mouthfeel that is both light and playful. Ripe apple, herbaceous sage and a precise minerality all intermingle on the tongue. This is a Wachau classic and can be enjoyed at any point in its long life. Serve it chilled, either alone or with leafy greens, asparagus, or white fish with dill and capers.
