Reviews and Ratings
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Peach and mineral aromas, with slight lemon and pronounced minerality on a bone-dry palate. Enjoy with shellfish stew.
Tasted Nov. 2018
|Jennifer Carter rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Dry, high acid that leaves your mouth watering. Fresh flavours of lime, peach and apricot. Stoney minerality. As a Riesling lover this is some thing I would drink all the time.
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Very lively Riesling with intense lime, green apple, slightly under-ripe pineapple. Has a backbone of salinity. Sip with fried seafood - cod cakes, popcorn shrimp - as a counterbalance to salty-fried goodness.
|Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Expressive nose featuring peach, apricot, lime, pear, white floral, and wet stone. Extra dry, riveting acidity, and big body for Riesling clocking in at a respectable 12.5% ABV. Mainly stone fruit on the palate with healthy notes of citrus and mineral. Long finish with resonating fruits and a touch of stone. Thinking classic German cuisine. Pork rouladen, schnitzel, sauerkraut, or river fish and lemon.
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Dry, lime-zesty, grapefruit-laced zinger of a Riesling. Gotta try this one with Francois Chartier's sauteed shrimp with rosemary (Tastebuds and Molecules). Tasted November 2018.
|Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Nose: MacIntosh apple, anjou pear, smoky minerality, lime zest, delicate white flowers
Palate: Much of the same reflected from the nose with a lemon-lime bursting dry refreshing finish
Pair with: seafoods, white fish, salmon with creamy dill flavours, baked poultries, Swiss cheese fondue
|From Domäne Wachau Terrassen, the Riesling wine grapes for Federspiel 2017 are sourced from steeply terraced plots near the cooling and moderated breezes of the Danube River and Atlantic Ocean. Ripe orchard fruit is matched by a vibrant acidity on the palate. Chill and pair with a charcuterie platter. - Community Wine Reviews|
