Grüner Veltliner Ried Hinter der Burg Federspiel 2008

Federspiel signifies a purely Wachau wine, fermented dry naturally between 11.5 % and 12.5 % alcohol. The name "Hinter der Burg", which has not been changed since the 13th century, means behind the old castle Weissenkirchen.

Tasting Notes

The aromas of citrus, spice and green apple lead into a palate of dense minerality and  citrus fruit, green herb, and sweet pea notes.

Food Pairing

Pair with lemon-caper halibut, roast chicken with root vegetables, or soft shell crab.
