Domäne Wachau is, as the name suggests, deeply rooted in the Wachau region. Close to 440 hectares of vineyards are cultivated by the members of this quality-oriented cooperative, which accounts for 30 percent of the entire Wachau vineyard area. Domäne Wachau’s vineyards are found on steep terraces reinforced by old, dry-stone walls and are part of a World Cultural Heritage. Famous names like ‘Achleiten’, ‘Kollmitz’, ‘Loibenberg’ and ‘Tausend-Eimer-Berg’ are found on the Domäne Wachau’s vineyard map, making it the only winery in Wachau with wines from all of the most prestigious sites in the region.

Tasting Note: A gentle hint of ripe tangerine peel immediately hits the nose. With more air, this unfolds to include notions of ripe blood orange and Mandarin, too. The palate comes in with steely concentration that speaks as much of absolute freshness as of glorious ripeness. The flavors are pristine, contoured by immense raciness. There is something steely and stony at the very core that radiates utter freshness. Drink by 2050.
