Fresh grapes in a glass

Moscato Giallo

2021

Wine
After all, we’re supposed to have fruit and vegetables five times a day. Our bright, aromatic Golden Muscat made from sun-drenched grapes – at the right temperature – is pure joy!

Grape variety

Goldmuskateller (“Golden Muscat”)

Site and soil

Mareit Leiten, 350 m elevation, very steep, southfacing slope with extremely long exposure to the sun and warm gravelly soil with moraine deposits. Vogelleiten und Panholzer with clay-limestone gravel soil.

Vintage

2021 was a relatively late year. The harvest began on September 13 with Sauvignon Blanc in Lieben Aich and ended on October 20 with Cabernet Sauvignon in Manincor. The ripening period in particular was char-acterised by almost perfect weather, with sunny days and clear nights where it cooled down properly. So, the year 2021 is all about balance. Physiological ripeness, sugar ripeness and acidity are in an optimal balance. Ripe fruit, cool character and moderate alcohol characterise the vintage. The Golden Muscat grapes were left on the vines until the middle of Octo-ber for perfect maturity. The berries were a golden yellow, the aroma highly intense. The yield was 51 hl per hectare.

Winemaking

Grapes were de-stemmed and left to macerate in the press for twelve hours to enrich the juice with aroma substances and body leached from the skins. Fermentation took place in oak and stainless steel tanks, partially with yeasts naturally occurring in the vineyard. The young wine was subsequently matured on the fine lees for five months to enable the aromas and flavour to evolve

Bottled

22.600 bottles were filled.
