Domäne Wachau Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Ried Achleiten 2017
Highly sought after, a very great Wachau specimen with long storage potential
- Strong, dry layered white wine
- Highly awarded, multiple awards
- Goes well with veal and spicy cheese
The Achleiten Riede is a legendary location in the Weißenkirchen district, with dry-stone walls dating back to the 12th century.
Equally impressive and magnificent is the Grüner Veltliner, which is growing there. After a few months of storage in a steel tank and in a large wooden barrel, its drinking maturity begins slowly, whereby the wine can certainly exploit the full potential for the next 10 to 15 years.
Awarded by the most important wine critics. Intense aroma of vineyard peach with fresh herbs. Slightly smoky minerality with a touch of exoticism on the palate. A perfect balance of fresh acidity with wonderfully elegant extra density. With each sip you can feel the high quality to the long, smooth finish.
Goes well with veal, pigeon or spicy cheeses. However, we prefer to drink the wine solo at the weekend to enjoy life.
