Top-class Austrian appellation – historic winemaking area
Weingut Rainer Wess
Located in the exclusive production district of the Wachau, an area of around 15 kilometres in length on the banks of the Danube, the Rainer Wess winery draws from a collection of vines on what are some of Europe’s most fertile soils. The landscape surrounding the vineyard evidences the local history of the region, recognised as one of the oldest cultural districts in Europe. Stone terraces, fortified hills, evidence of ancient fruit groves and a whole host of traditional customs ensure that locals are very proud of their heritage, a mantra they maintain when it comes to wine production.
A dry white from a top-class Austrian appellation. Juicy stone fruit, lemon and typical white pepper and herbs aromas. There is added complexity of delicious struck-match, flint and vanilla pod. Very fresh palate with notes of lemon curd, gingerbread and peaches. A wine for every palate as it is both complex and absolutely charming
