Pale straw in colour. Crushed yuzu-leaf notions on the bouquet spell vivid, aromatic, green- and yellow-tinged freshness. The palate intensifies this, with zesty intensity on a slender, dry and utterly citrus-filled body. A pithy edge lends texture and concentration. If you need refreshment, this is it. Lip-smackingly good.

Domäne Wachau is deeply rooted in the Wachau region. Close to 440 hectares of vineyards are cultivated by the members of this quality-oriented cooperative – that makes 30 percent of the entire Wachau vineyard area. These vineyards are found on steep terraces reinforced by old dry stone walls and are part of a World Cultural Heritage. Famous names like Achleiten, Kollmitz, Loibenberg and Tausend-Eimer-Berg are found on the Domäne Wachau’s vineyard map and make it the only winery in the Wachau with wines from all of the most prestigious sites in the region. Domäne Wachau strives for the highest quality and as a member of the Vinea Wachau Nobils Districtus quality association, produces wines in the categories Steinfeder, Federspiel and Smaragd. Grapes are sourced from our own vineyards in the Wachau; the purchase of grapes, must or wine from outside the Wachau is not permitted. Domäne Wachau is among the largest wineries in Austria and produces wines in the premium segment only.
