The wine offers distinctive aromas of green apple, white pepper, hints of mango and delicate herbal notes, This Federspiel is a classic example of Grüner Veltliner with its medium-body crisp acidity, juicy fruits, and white spice on the finish. The name Federspiel is derived from falconry which was a very popular leisure time activity among the nobility in medieval times. The falcon stands for the remarkable elegance of these dry white wines. Serve well chilled. Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Terrassen ideally accompanies Austrian cuisine such as a crispy Cordon Bleu or Schnitzel with risipisi or a Tafelspitz (boiled beef) with its classic side dishes (apple horseradish & chive sauce). The wine also goes well with Mediterranean dishes, for example a Saltimbocca or a powerful Paella. Also, for many types of cheese or Far Eastern cuisine such as for example Vietnamese spring rolls (Goi Cuôn) shine with this Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Terrassen. 

Domane Wachau Description

Grapes 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.

Work in the vineyard takes place based on sustainable and, increasingly, organic principles, without the use of insecticides or herbicides, and grapes are hand-picked. The grapes are carefully selected and then processed in a pneumatic tank press, with the must then fermented under controlled temperature and aged on their fine lees in stainless steel tanks.

A notably cold spring and a cool summer pushed back the growing calendar. Then came a picture-perfect autumn: glorious weather, filled with plentiful sunshine, dry days and cool nights — ideal conditions for the optimally ripened fruit that powers a truly grand vintage. This year will be remembered for its wines of good concentration and compelling elegance and finesse, combined with depth, tremendous momentum and tension on the palate and challenging acidity.
