Pale straw in colour with green hues. The bouquet shows notes of fresh stone fruit, herbs and a hint of mineral. Very vibrant and animating on the palate, quite powerful, but very balanced. Hints of citrus and light fruits, some peach notes come to the fore and quite complex. Very fine, great length on the crisp finish.

The Johann Donabaum winery is one of the up-and-coming estates in the Wachau. The junior is actively supported by his parents in working the labor-intensive mountain and terrace sites. The estate's wines - Riesling Offenberg and Setzberg as well as Grüner Veltliner Spitzer Point - can be found on the best-assorted wine lists in the country. The rare Neuburger grape is also cultivated, and the Smaragd from the Spitzer Biern site is one of the outstanding representatives of this variety. A small bridge over the Spitzer valley leads to the historic estate, which dates back to the 16th century. Consistent work by the entire family is the basis for optimal grapes, the basis for high-quality wines, which are characterised by soil, climate and the handwriting of the winemaker.
