Domäne Wachau is one of Austria’s most established, yet most innovative wineries. The new team that was put in charge five years ago is headed by Roman Horvath, Austria’s second Master of Wine and Heinz Frischengruber, a young enologist with impressive international experience. In the capable hands of the dynamic team, Domäne Wachau has established itself in the ranks of Austria’s leading wineries. Combining fresh ideas, youthful personality and international experience, the team brings a new energy to the historic winery and makes the future look brighter than ever. Roman Horvath and Heinz Frischengruber are convinced that great wine is not made in the cellar but in the vineyards. Improving the quality of the grapes is the main focus for continued improvement of the wines. To achieve this goal, the cooperative initiated a grading system for their member’s vineyards. Throughout the vegetation period the vineyards are observed and graded according to high standards set by the Domäne Wachau. With patience and respect towards the members, the new team has achieved what many cooperative wineries aim for: the dedication and commitment of the members who, voluntarily, make every effort to supply their winery with the best possible grape material. While the main attention is paid to grape quality, the work in the cellar is reduced to a necessary minimum. “Working with what the Wachau has to give us” is the first priority of oenologist Heinz Frischengruber. His conscientious and gentle handling of the fruit results in a precisely focused style. The Domane Wachau wines showcase the fruit character and mineral finesse that is the unique personality of the Wachau Valley. Read less

This is beautifully pungent with green herb notes flanked by fennel, dried lemon peel, grapefruit and a hint of pink peppercorn. Big on entry and a touch soft, the acidity here takes a moment to assert itself before adding a nice mineral inflection to the grapefruit pith and pear fruit of the palate. With air more mineral emerges, particularly on the back end, but then this stumbles a bit on the short finish. Again though, with air, there is progress, as this turns nicely pithy with long, herbal top notes and a nice mineral base. This is very nice today but I think time will help move it to a better place. 91pts

Dry, with a hint of peach. Clean on the finish.

Kristallklares Strohgelb mit zarten Goldreflexen. Ausdrucksvoll in der Nase mit Noten nach Tabak, weisem Pfeffer, Schiefer und etwas Mango. Der Körper präsentiert sich überzeugend fest und dicht. Die kräftige Säure verschafft perfekte Balance und einen mineralischen, langen Abgang.

Helles Strohgelb, der Geruch ist offen und zugänglich, subtil und verspielt mit Aromen nach weissem Pfeffer, etwas Tabak und zarte Nussnoten. Eine erfrischende Säure paart sich mit fülligem Körper und mittlerem Alkohol. Hinzu kommt etwas Akazie und Birne im Aroma. Langer Abgang!
