Johann Donabaum Spitzer Federspiel Wachau Riesling 2018

Delicate mineral expression with underlying intense lime and white pepper, concentrated and beautifully fresh and vibrant. Lovely Riesling expression.

Producer Note

After only a few years, Johann is carving out a formidable reputation for concentrated, mineral laden white wines. His wines are always in high demand. The production from his five hectares of hillside vineyard in the Spitzer Valley is miniscule, but despite this his prices remain really competitive.

Vineyard

The grapes come from the Spitz vineyard in Western Wachau. The vines are grown on steep hillside terraces which make up several vineyards in the Spitzer Graben. The vines are planted with a south western orientation. Cooling breezes help to keep the climate temperate. The soils are very sandy and have high heat retention properties. The soil’s composition is the result of weathering of the local rocks and it is dominated by pegmatite and calc-silicate gneisses, which have low water retention and help to impart structure to the resulting wine.

Winemaking

The grapes were harvested at optimal maturity and meticulously sorted. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, in order to retain the purity of fruit and the ultimate expression of the Spitz terroir.

Tasting Note

An enchanting wine delivering distinctive aromas of peach and apricot. Crisp, with pure varietal character echoed on the palate, this refreshing wine has an excellent structure and a lively finish. Lovely Riesling expression.
