Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Achleiten - Domäne Wachau
More information
The

expressive, grape varietal Grüner Veltliner Emerald Achleiten from Domäne Wachau comes from the Austrian wine-growing region Wachau der Lage Achleiten. 

In the glass, this layered wine shimmers in an intense greenish yellow with gold-gloss highlights. In the nose, an emphatically spicy bouquet unfolds with lush aromas of exotic fruits (such as passion fruit and papaya), ground white pepper and the finest mineral and smoky nuances. 

On the palate, this Austrian white wine is wonderfully concentrated with a dense body and a pronounced exotic aroma. There is a wonderful balance between the strong acidity and the minerality present. The finale is incredibly long and concludes with the typical spiciness of the Green Veltliner. 

Vinification of the domain Wachau Emerald Green Veltliner Achleiten

The

Grüner Veltliner grapes are carefully picked by hand  at the end of October to the beginning of November in the Ried Achleiten. Both in the vineyard and in the wine cellar, the harvested material is strictly selected so that only healthy, mature berries are vinified. The grapes are gently pressed and the resulting must is fermented in stainless steel tanks. Until next summer, this wine remains on the fine yeast and will be bottled in August. 

Food recommendation for the Emerald Achleiten Grüner Veltliner Domäne Wachau

This dry white wine from Austria is an excellent accompaniment to veal ragout or veal chips, fried quail in a dark sauce or to matured cheeses.
