Domäne Wachau Riesling Smaragd Terrassen 2018
Production The grapes for Riesling Smaragd Terrassen were carefully handpicked in mid-October. It is the combination of poor soils and labour-intensive cultivation of the vines on the steep terraced vineyards that help to reduce the average yield to 6.000kg per hectare. After temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine matured partly in stainless steel and partly in big wooden casks before final blending.
Bright yellow-green. Ripe aromas of apricot, nectarine and subtle hints of passion fruit. Rich and energetic palate has expressive fruit that is also very delightful, neatly balanced and elegant. This wine is charming; a very pleasant Smaragd with a long lingering finish.
