"Notes of both green and yellow pears shine on the nose. The palate has a pronounced saltiness and bright lemon highlights, supported by a savory backbone."
"RS 1 g/l, TA 5.8 g/l.
Good grip and drive – because of dissolved CO2? No, because of early picking apparently. This producer seems to have grappled with 2018 softness and won. And it tastes like Grüner! 16.5/20 points."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Domäne Wachau is one of Austria’s most renowned wineries, based in Austria’s most prestigious wine growing region, the Wachau. Steep terraced yineyards, a cool, marginal climate and meagre primary rock soils define the wines. „Federspiel“ stands for dry, medium bodied and elegantly balanced wines of the Wachau. Terrassen - Chosen for their specific microclimate and meagre primary rock soils, the vineyard sites for Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Terrassen were carefully hand-picked from steeply terraced vineyards throughout the Wachau valley. It exhibits a very typical and consistent style of Grüner Veltliner from Wachau characterized by fresh fruit and a pronounced minerality. Tasting Notes: Bright yellow-green in color, this wine offers distinctive aromas of green apple, white pepper, hints of mango, balanced with delicate herbal notes. This Federspiel is a traditional example of Grüner Veltliner with its medium-body crisp acidity, juicy fruits and white spice on the finish. Food Pairing: This wine is a perfect pairing for fish, seafood, and poultry as well as the traditional Austrian cuisine “Wiener Schnitzel”.
