Description

Brilliant, pale straw yellow; open and playful on the nose with aromas of white pepper, delicate tobacco notes and exotic fruit flavors; well-balanced and structured on the palate, lively with an elegant body, juicy exotic fruit flavors, plenty of spice and herbs; long finish. Domäne Wachau is that rarest of things, a producer of significant volume of wine who also manages to produce some of Austria’s finest wines. Situated in the stunning Wachau valley, through which flows the Danube river, Wachau is the coolest vine growing region of Austria and the combination of warm days, cool nights and ancient, rocky soils create wines of precision, minerality and fantastic purity of fruit. While the region is undoubtedly endowed with significant natural advantages to produce fantastic wines, much of it’s recent success – including winning 4 trophies at the IWC – must be attributed to the dynamic young team at the winery headed by Roman Horvath MW and the winemaker Heinz Frischengruber. The team have also made a vital contribution to the preservation of this UNESCO world heritage site. The dramatic, steep, terraced vineyards make it a challenging place to grow vines and without their efforts, many of the vine growers would have abandoned the vineyards, losing in the process centuries of tradition as well as many of Austria’s top viticultural sites.AL
