Domane Wachau Riesling Ried Achleiten Smaragd 1999

$651 —> $438/bottle


Domäne Wachau is, as the name suggests, deeply rooted in the Wachau region. Close to 440 hectares of vineyards are cultivated by the members of this quality-oriented cooperative, which accounts for 30 percent of the entire Wachau vineyard area. Domäne Wachau’s vineyards are found on steep terraces reinforced by old, dry-stone walls and are part of a World Cultural Heritage. Famous names like ‘Achleiten’, ‘Kollmitz’, ‘Loibenberg’ and ‘Tausend-Eimer-Berg’ are found on the Domäne Wachau’s vineyard map, making it the only winery in Wachau with wines from all of the most prestigious sites in the region.

 

Fully mature Austrian riesling, stored and recently labelled in the cellars of Domäne Wachau. This is showing delicious savoury maturity on the nose, with notes of lanolin and nutmeg but there are still bright preserved lemon-rind and quince aromas too. The palate is complex, full and fresh, with surprisingly crisp acidity which follows through to the finish, holding the lemon, peach, spice and flint flavours together remarkably well. The finish is long, crisp and mouthwatering, making for a moreish and indulgent treat.

 

The 1999 Achleiten Riesling Smaragd displays a deep yellow color and opens with an intense and mature bouquet with spicy aromas. Full-bodied, lush and concentrated, even sweetish and with confiture fruit on the palate, this is a still young, vital and generous Achleiten with ripe peach and apricot aromas in the aromatic finish that also reveals some caramel flavors and a light bitterness of tannins. This has great length and complexity, but probably not from the very best bottle. However, the ripe fruit and vital freshness will easily take this 1999 through another decade.
