Rainer Wess Grüner Veltliner Wachauer 2006

Member Review by Constance Chamberlain:

Winemaker notes: The grapes for the Wachauer wines originate from flat sites in the towns of Unterloiben and Dürnstein. Here the alluvial soil is covered with some loess (windblown silt, clay and sand) layers. The grapes ripen early and are the first to be picked. These factors account for the aromatic, zesty, forward and uncomplicated character of Wachauer Grüner Veltliner and Rieslings. The wines have ample "cool" fruit in their bouquets and expressive citrus and stone fruits on the palate. The finishes are long and crisp.

The Wachau, in the heartland of Lower Austria, is one of the oldest ltural landscapes of Europe. The landscapes, characterised by stone erraces, the fortified hills, their fruit cultures, its richness in flora and fauna, its customs, cultural treasures, aromatic, vivacious wines and versatile culinary specialities is unique in the world. The narrow valley with its steep ascending vineyard slopes along the Danube is only 33 kilometres long; the wine district, whose name is rotected by law, is only 15 kilometres long.
