Style GuideDry Sweet
Present and pronounced on the nose this wine displays stone fruit, delicate lime, and hints of ripe pear. On the palate there are flavors of juicy white peach and subtle hints of apricot. This wine is well balanced by a refined structure, very fresh, crisp, and plush acidity. 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. Serve well chilled. This Riesling is a classic accompaniment to fresh Mediterranean cuisine such as a Bouillabaisse, grilled sea wolf or a Piccata Milanese. It also goes ideally with sushi, sashimi & Co, but also with baked dishes such as shrimp in tempura batter. Riesling Federspiel goes well with Austrian dishes, such as trout blue with a crunchy summer salat with sheep or goat cheese or with baked carp.
Grapes from different small, terraced vineyard plots were carefully handpicked for this wine. The majority of the grapes come from the vineyards surrounding Spitz, Dürnstein and Weissenkirchen. This Riesling Federspiel reflects the unique climate and primary rock soils of 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.
