A bottle of Donauriesling

Donauriesling is a new grape variety that was created by crossing Riesling with fungus-resistant vines. As early as in the 1970s, efforts were made to combine the great quality potential of Riesling with the robust growing characteristics of American vines, and only 40 years later, the results of these efforts are now arriving in viticulture. A direct comparison with Riesling reveals many similarities with subtle differences. In blind tastings, however, it has already happened to us that we no longer knew which wine was in which glass after a while. We think that this is quite extraordinary!

Tasting notes

The Donauriesling offers a fine scent of fresh stone fruits. On the palate it is firm, with beautiful, not too sharp acidity and a harmonious overall impression. The finish is persistent and sparkles with charm.

Food suggestion

Goes very well with light vegetable and poultry dishes, casseroles and cold buffet.

Ageing potential

At least 4 years.
