Smaragd is the Wachau designation for dry late harvest wines, above 12.5% alcohol through natural fermentation. Grown on terraces with soils of Gföhl gneiss and loess, the old vines produce a minerally wine with plenty of fruit and vibrant acidity.

Tasting Notes

Medium lemon-green with aromas of banana skin, lime candy and green apple, this light-bodied wine has bright acid on the palate and a pleasant finish.

Food Pairing

Pair with French onion soup, grilled sole, or coq au vin.
