Description

Domäne Wachau is, as the name suggests, deeply rooted in the Wachau region. Close to 440 hectares of vineyards are cultivated by the members of this quality-oriented cooperative, which accounts for 30 percent of the entire Wachau vineyard area. Domäne Wachau’s vineyards are found on steep terraces reinforced by old, dry-stone walls and are part of a World Cultural Heritage. Famous names like ‘Achleiten’, ‘Kollmitz’, ‘Loibenberg’ and ‘Tausend-Eimer-Berg’ are found on the Domäne Wachau’s vineyard map, making it the only winery in Wachau with wines from all of the most prestigious sites in the region.

Achleiten is a legendary vineyard in the Wachau, located on the east side of the village of Weissenkirchen. It is famous for wines with an inimitable mineral character. Dry stone walls dating back to the 12th century, which mount the steep slopes with their silicate-rich soil, dominate this vineyard’s landscape. In the upper terraces, gneiss is the prevailing subsoil, the lower terraces are dominated by dark, schistous amphibolites. Achleiten is perhaps the most uncompromising vineyard of the Wachau; the expression of the site persistently dominates the grape variety and bring wines with mineral character and enormous aging potential.

This wine is bright golden yellow with golden-green highlights. The nose is pronounced with floral notes, white peach and fresh herbs, white pepper; salty minerality. The body is juicy and concentrated. The delicate density and the subtle exotic notes are well balanced by its refreshing acidity; tantalizing vibrancy; and long mineral-driven finish.
