Domane Wachau Smaragd Achleiten Gruner Veltliner 2006
Gruner Veltliner from Austria
This single vineyard selection, Achleiten, shows delightful floral, stone fruit and mineral character on the nose. It is extremely concentrated and ripe on the palate with a superb balance of grapefruit and quince apple, pepper spice and mineral structure on the crisp high acid, mouth watering finish.
Domane Wachau Winery
2005 brought a new, young, enthusiastic team to this historic property on the banks of the Danube river. Headed by general manager Roman Horvath and enologist Heinz Frischengruber, this team brings fresh ideas, personality and a new energy to the historic cooperative formerly known as Freie Weingartner Wachau. This dynamic duo produces wines which showcase the fruit character and mineral finesse provided by the Wachau valley's unique diversity. Domäne Wachau is the largest cooperative in the Wachau valley, and is made up of 600 contributing members farming slightly less than 500 hectares, or a full one third of the total region's vineyards. Each individual member is challenged to produce the best wines possible, and paid for the quality of their production first, the quantity second. The showplace of the winery is the baroque cellar palace depicted on the label. View all Domane Wachau Wines
