Domäne Wachau is one of Austria’s most renowned wineries, based in Austria’s most prestigious wine growing region, the Wachau. Steep terraced vineyards, a cool, marginal climate and meagre primary rock soils define the wines. “Smaragd “ stands for complex, full-bodied wines of the Wachau with aging potential.
The “Terrassen” wines are blended from various steep terraced vineyards throughout the Wachau valley and offer a perfect introduction to the unique wine style of the Wachau.
Bright straw yellow. Subtle and playful on the nose with aromas of white pepper, some tobacco and exotic fruit, mango and pineapple. The refreshing acidity pairs with the powerful, elegant body and a medium alcohol level. Spicy white pepper and a hint of fresh herbs on the palate. Long finish!
How to enjoy best
Serve well chilled directly from the fridge. The wine perfectly accompanies grilled fish (even with creamy sauces), deep-fried dishes, the traditional Austrian “Tafelspitz“ (beef pot-roast), but also grilled white meat such as chicken or veal. Drink now or age for 4-6 years.
