Domäne Wachau Wachau
This Wachau co-op with around 600 growers produces some of the most readily available and affordable examples of Grüner Veltliner and Riesling from the Wachau. While the wines are not at the same level as the very best private estates, standards are nonetheless quite impressive. Volume examples are released under the Wachau Klassik label and they generally show good definition and intensity. The Domäne Wachau label was originally introduced for wines from individual vineyard sites although all wines are now released under this banner. As well as the leading wines listed below, individual bottlings from other sites such as Singerriedel and 1000-Eimer-Berg are also produced. Dry wines are generally best with between 2 and 5 years’ age, though will keep longer in top vintages.
