Domaine Wachau, Terrassen, Gruner Veltliner, Federspiel, Wachau, Austria, 2018

If you are not familiar with Gruner Veltliner, this is a good one to cut your teeth on.

It hails from Wachau which is located on the Danube river in Lower Austria close to the borders of the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

The wine carries the Wachau classification of Federspiel which means it has 11.5 – 12.5 ABV (Alcohol by Volume).

This white wine is clear with a tinge of light white gold. The nose is a mix of white flowers, stone fruit and tropical fruit (white peach and pineapple), a tickle of white pepper and light minerality.

On the palate, the wine is dry with some white peach and a hint of lime and grapefruit. There is some pleasant phenolic bitterness and a very light creamy mouth feel.
