Domane Wachau Gruner Veltliner Federspiel Terrassen 2013

Domane Wachau Gruner Veltliner Federspiel Terrassen 750ML 2013      
Sku: 19746

Fresh straw yellow in color with a bouquet of gooseberries and hints of green apple and white pepper. Medium bodied with a mix of citrus, apple and peach fruit. Light mineral character lingers on the finish and vibrant acidity makes the palate hum. "Terrassen” or terraced signifys that this wine is sourced from multiple terraced vineyards, while the term "Federspiel" is a quality designation (specific to the Wachau from lowest to highest: Steinfeder, Federspiel, and Smaragd).

 Wine Spectator 89 points (Nov 15 2014)
Green pear, pippin apple and grapefruit flavors show accents of white pepper, with ripe melon and kiwifruit hints on the crunchy finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,700 cases made.-KM
