Origin: Austria - Wachau | Variety: Riesling | Producer: Domäne Wachau
Domäne Wachau is one of Austria's most renowned wineries, based in Austria's most prestigious wine growing region, the Wachau. Steep terraced yineyards, a cool, marginal climate and meagre primary rock soils define the wines. ?Federspiel" stands for dry, medium bodied and elegantly balanced wines of the Wachau.
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.
