Classic Grüner Veltliner from a top producer, complex flavours, delicious fruits and spice on the finish.
In the coolest wine growing region in Austria and on terraces that look down upon the famous Danube river, Domaine Wachau makes its home. The precipitously steep vineyards are stitched together by dry stone walls and it is amongst this challenging, yet beautiful, environment that Roman Horvath MW and oenologist Heinz Frischengruber work their magic. The strong diurnal changes of temperature coupled with the mineral rich soils all play their part in making this ideal territory for Gruner Veltliner and Riesling. Turning a cooperative winery with great potential into a winery that is model for sustainable winemakers the world over, the Wachau team not only have an inspirational landscape in which to work, but are at the heart of a winery which is an inspiration for so many others.
Tasting Note: Bright yellow-green in colour, this wine offers distinctive aromas of golden delicious apple, white pepper, hints of exotic fruits, 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
