Alzinger Dürnstein Federspiel Wachau Grüner Veltliner

Region: Wachau
Grape variety: Grüner Veltliner
Vineyard: From multiple vineyards in Dürnstein
Soil type: clay mixed with gneiss, mica schist, & loam
Wine-making: Spontaneously fermented in stainless steel. Elevage in steel with a small amount of neutral Austrian oak.

Inviting and lively, often stone fruit and fine vegetable aromas; delicate, filigree and subtle texture. Never pushy, always direct, straightforward & digestible. Animating and juicy finish.

The Danube makes its mark on the plain in Loiben and Dürnstein. Gravel, sand and sediments form the basis for the village Grüner Veltliner , which is juicy and elegantly exemplary for a classic spring game version.

Tasting Notes

This is the best Federspiel wine I’ve ever tasted, and was a candidate for wine-of-the-vintage. Honestly, it’s fabulous; one of those 3-class upgrades you sometimes get in `18 with the “small” wines. Only the best Hirtzberger Federspiels have ever shown this class and beauty of fruit. Every one of GVs prettiest and most winsome flavors is here. Terry Theise
