Domane Wachau Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Achleiten

Product Code:DW102A

Varietal Composition

Grüner Veltliner

Fermentation Method

Grüner Veltliner from Achleiten is characterised by low yields due to the meagre primary rock soils. The grapes for this wine were hand-picked at the end of October/ beginning of November. The grapes were delivered to Dürnstein in plastic bins of approximately 300 kg. After a few hours of maceration, the grapes were pressed gently. Late bottling in August 2014 and therefore the long contact with the fine lees provides more precise nuances and gives additionally great finesse.
