Pale straw in colour. Open and approachable on the bouquet, highlighted by ripe yellow apple, white pepper and underlined by delicate citrus peels with a touch of smoky tobacco. The palate is beautifully balanced with a vibrant acidity which results in an elegant and powerful body, juicy exotic fruit notes, plenty of spice and dry herbs dominate the palate that is long and full. The finish is dry, and complex with plenty of finesse on the finish.

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.
