Editorial Reviews for Freie Weingärtner Wachau Domäne Wachau Riesling Federspiel Terrassen
Very aromatic, with a lovely array of fresh citrus fruit, earthy apples, and floral and spice aromas over a fine base of dusty minerals. This is a touch spicy in the mouth with a white peppery accent to the herb-inflected ripe apple and lime pith fruit. There's also a mineral edge here that adds nice cut to the mid-palate, which gains weight in the mouth turning fairly powerful and rich, if remaining dry. The back end shows a slight licorice note that tops the modest green apple and peach-toned finish. Firm, well balanced and complex, this lacks a little verve in the mouth and shows a touch of heaviness. 87pts
A floral (almost soapy) nose, but fruity on the tongue with a hint of pears and apples.
Slight pear, apple, and petrol on the nose. Medium bodied and quite acidic. Tastes like a Grüner Veltliner masquerading as a riesling, but with none of the white pepper spice. A nice break from the rieslings of Alsace or Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, but not as expressive/explosive as the former, nor as delicate as the latter. Perhaps a different vintage will make for a more characteristic wine.
for the 2007
Lemoney but a little acid. Refreshing but not complex

Helles Strohgelb mit zarten Grünreflexen. Noten nach Grapefruit und Marille. Am Gaumen Steinobstaromatik. Die rassige Säure wird durch die gute Frucht und Aromatiefe ausgezeichnet balanciert.
