Gelber Muskateller Rosenhügel

2017

Rich, spicy, concentrated, fully ripe, and quite yeasty with open-hearted aromas of chamomile, apple, cherry, red berries and marzipan. Incredibly juicy with crisp citrus that beautifully highlights the fruit. Creamy pineapple, incense and candied mandarin zest wrapped around a refreshing, lively core. Oak is still perceptible. Fleur de sel joins in on the long racy finish.

Viktor Siegl

The Muskateller (Muscat) grape variety was traditionally very popular in the Kamptal in the last few centuries, especially in order to lend liveliness and fragrance, along with its fine flavour, to the old “Gemischten Satz” - the field mix of grape varieties planted and harvested together. But it was also very popular as a delicious table grape. 

This variety was planted fresh again at the Bründlmayer estate in 1997 after a break for a few decades. The small planted areas are in the Steinmassel, Spiegel and Sauberg vineyard sites. In 2015, there were 100% healthy grapes picked on October 22nd, with the occasional smattering of botrytis grapes removed.

After a short maceration, the grapes were gently pressed and fermented in small (1200 – 2500 ltr) stainless steel tanks at 17-20 °C.

Food pairing recommendation

The Gelber Muskateller is a very versatile food companion, fitting to, for example, a range of exotic dishes, seafood, curries, wok dishes, and to typical Austrian specialties as well - such as baked foods, roast pork, duck and liver. It also marries well with cheeses, casseroles or robust fish dishes. After an intense culinary evening, the wine also makes an ideal after-dinner refreshment wine, served cool.
