Domane Wachau Terrassen Smaragd Riesling

Product Code:DW101A

Varietal Composition

Riesling

Fermentation Method

The grapes for Riesling Smaragd Terrassen were carefully hand-picked at the beginning of November. The hard, labour-intensive cultivation of the vines on the steep terraced vineyards and the poor soils reduce the average yield to below 5.000kg 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.

Tasting Notes

COLOR: Bright greenish yellow.
NOSE: Intense and fruit-driven on the nose with hints of apricot, ripe peach and exotic fruits, some mango.
PALATE: Expressive fruit aromas and a juicy finish, full of finesse, alcohol, acidity and body are in great balance; a charming and very pleasant Smaragd.
