Wine of the Day: Domane Wachau Gruner Veltliner

Vibrant, fresh, mineral-driven, and singing of summer, Domäne Wachau Gruner Veltliner  Federspiel Terrassen ($18) is the perfect wine to help cool you down on what is turning into a very hot summer! Situated in the historic Wachau Valley in Austria filled with steep slopes terraced with stone walls, and surrounded by mountains, the Wachau has also been named a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. The rocky soils of Wachau overlooking the Danube River are ideal for growing high-quality, highly aromatic, expressive, and elegant fruit.

Domane Wachau’s Gruner opens with floral aromas of apple and peach blossom, honeysuckle, and a touch of tropical mango, leading to flavors of ripe peach, golden apple and pear, wet stone, and soft herb. The zesty character of the wine is truly appealing, lifting the medium bodied palate and requiring you to enjoy sip after sip. #Cheers
