Juicy lime, green mango, a dusting of pepper and green herb. Direct and juicy, with a dusty peppery texture, a bit of crunch and slightly sour grapefruit acidity, and a spicy finish of good length. All the nice Grüner things, at a very fair price.

How's it taste?
Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Terrassen is a real benchmark wine from Wachau, characterised by fresh fruit and pronounced minerality. The wine offers distinctive aromas of green apple, white pepper, hints of mango and delicate herbal notes This Federspiel is a classic example of Grüner Veltliner with its medium-body crisp acidity, juicy fruits and white spice on the finish. The name Federspiel is derived from falconry which was a very popular leisure time activity among the nobility in medieval times. The falcon stands for the remarkable elegance of these dry white wines. – Roman Horvath MW, Domäne Wachau
How was it made?
Grapes for Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Terrassen were carefully hand-picked from steeply terraced vineyards throughout the Wachau valley. Work in the vineyard takes place based on sustainable and, increasingly, organic principles, without the use of insecticides or herbicides, and grapes are hand-picked. The grapes are carefully selected and then processed in a pneumatic tank press, with the must then fermented under controlled temperature and aged on their fine lees in stainless steel tanks.

Jeremy Oliver - GT Wine
A vivacious, punchy and translucently pure grüner, with a pungent, floral bouquet of stone fruit, pear and apple skin revealing a fresh spiciness. There’s plenty of richness and fatness on the palate, but it moves with length and shape towards a refreshing finish of bracing acidity and a lingering, slightly funky note of yeast-derived meatiness. Wonderful value and way ahead of any local variant, it could make me take this variety more seriously.
