Palate Profile

Domäne Wachau’s vineyards are found on steep terraces reinforced by old, dry-stone walls and are part of a World Cultural Heritage. 

Gneiss, weathered primary rock, meagre soil - synonymous for Achleiten. A monumental Riesling from one of the most spectacular white wine terroirs.

The wine is a bright straw yellow with yellow-gold highlights. Aromas of ripe exotic fruits - especially pineapple - juicy apricots and quince reveal themselves. The fruity aroma is accompanied by fine hints of white flowers and honeysuckle. 

The palate has a dusty, dense texture with a delicate fresh acidity and spiciness. The body is very elegantly woven with minerality and is perfectly balanced with a long slightly spicy finish.
