Wine: Domane Wachau Riesling Smaragd Achleiten

Product Code: ATGV005

Availability: In stock



Country: Austria, Wachau Valley

Tasting Notes: Riesling of single vineyard Achleiten is characterized by reduced yields due to the shallow topsoil. It is very aromatic, juicy stone fruit aromas, such as apricot and a touch of vineyard peach. The gneiss soil of the Achleiten leads to a classy firm acidity. The term Smaragd stands for dry, dense, and complex wines of the Wachau; Apart from structure and depth, Smaragd wines also convince with great ageing potential.

Varietal: 100% Riesling

Pairing: Well chilled, the wine goes well with asparagus with ham or classically with sauce hollondaise and of course with local fish (trout, char) from the grill. The wine also goes well with spicy Far Eastern dishes, for example, a Korean bulgogi (fried beef with soy sauce, ginger and garlic). Charming in its youth, after 3-5 years at the first peak, the Riesling from the Achleiten can also mature for 15 years or more.
