    2022 Domäne Wachau Grüner Veltliner 'Terrassen' Federspiel

    • $35.00


    There is no wine more versatile at the table! Carefully hand-picked from steeply terraced vineyards throughout the Wachau valley. Exhibits a very typical and consistent style of Grüner Veltliner from Wachau characterised by fresh fruit and a pronounced minerality. Pronounced peppery flavour and racy structure offer plenty of pleasant refreshment.

    The history of the vineyard Liebenberg dates back to the 14th century. Early records mention “lieb’nperig“, which later became "Liebenberg". The views of this south- and southwest-facing site are lined by stone walls. Liebenberg is situated in the western part of Dürnstein and has rather cooler influences compared to, for example, Kellerberg. Liebenberg is one of the most fascinating vineyards in the Wachau; various forms of paragneiss represent the parent rock for the soils. Dark amphibolite outcrops are scattered everywhere, and amphibolite is also found in the stone walls. Due to its meagre terrain, the wines are characterised by elegance and subtle minerality.

    Light greenish yellow, silver reflections. Fine tobacco spice, a little gingerbread, candied orange zest, ripe apple fruit, kumquats in the echo. Juicy, complex, mineral, finely spicy, a touch of pear on the finish, salty aftertaste. A versatile food wine.  92 points - Peter Moser, Falstaff
