2020 Domane Wachau Riesling Terrassen Federspiel

Wachau, Austria

Zesty Austrian Riesling from one of the Wachau's most best producers. Spicy, peppery and elegantly plush.



About The Wine

Federspiel is the middle tier of the Wachau region's unique wine level designations - wines must be 11.5%-12.5% in alcohol, and are a little richer in style, though not as rich as the top level Smaragd.

This a crunchy, peppery and tropical Riesling sourced from several different plots within Domane Wachau. Orchard fruits, some citrus and spice. There is some plushness to the palate but of course the acidity soaks it all up.

About Domane Wachau

Domane Wachau is one of Austria’s most renowned wineries, based in Austria’s most prestigious wine growing region, the Wachau. Steep terraced vineyards along the Danube, a cool, marginal climate and meagre primary rock soils define the wines.

The wine estate was established by Roman Horvath MW and Heinz Frischengruber. Across their range of single vineyard wines, the 'Terrassen' blends and the village wines, a singular beauty and cool acidity shine through. Gruner Veltliner and Riesling are the standout varieties.

Many of these vineyards are world-famous, including Achleiten, Kellerberg and Singerriedel.

From The Producer

Subtle peach and apricot, apple blossom and a touch of lychee. This wine exhibits excellent balance with racy acid perfectly integrated.

Grapes from different small, terraced vineyard plots were carefully handpicked for this wine. The majority of the grapes come from the vineyards surrounding Spitz, Dürnstein and Weissenkirchen. This Riesling Federspiel reflects the unique climate and primary rock soils of the Wachau Valley.

The Wine Front

"Green pear, lime, a dusting of pepper and dried herb. Juicy, apple and stonefruit, chalky grip, a pleasant lemon zest bitterness, and a bright and tangy finish of good length. Tasty." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
