Ried Rosenhügel Gelber Muskateller TBA
Bright golden hue, viscous; highly fragrant rose petal notes, exotic fruit nuances, too, beautifully lifted; juicy sweetness on the front palate which is counteracted by a present acid structure, confected notes, Indian spice, floral accents and ripe guava and overripe mango fruit, highly concentrated but still balanced, finishes very long with this pointed acid structure. A wine for decades!
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.
