hectares, or a full one third of the total region’s vineyards. Each individual member is challenged to produce the best
wines possible, and paid for the quality of their production first, the quantity second. The showplace of the winery is the
baroque cellar palace depicted on the label.
Fresh straw yellow in color with a bouquet of gooseberries and hints of green apple and white pepper. Medium bodied with a mix of citrus, apple and peach fruit. Light mineral character lingers on the finish and vibrant acidity makes the palate hum. “Terrassen” or terraced signifies that this wine is sourced from multiple terraced vineyards, while the term ""Federspiel"" is a quality designation (specific to the Wachau from lowest to highest: Steinfeder, Federspiel, and Smaragd).

“There was no disputing our favorite, the
Domäne Wachau Federspiel Terrassen, which
had all the balance we were hoping to find, along
with pure, deep, complex flavors.” - July 7, 2009 The New York Times"
