Fresh grapes in a glass

Moscato Giallo

2019

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”)

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

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

2019 was not a year for volume, but in terms of quality it was very good and in some cases excellent. The new shoots appeared early, but cold and wet weather in April and May held back vegetation growth to such an extent that it became a late year. A long ripening period in combination with a golden autumn finally created the conditions for a great vintage. The Golden Muscat grapes were left on the vines until the middle of October for perfect maturity. The berries were a golden yellow, the aroma highly intense. At 55 hl per hectare, the yield was low.

Description and food recommendations

Intense golden yellow in colour, this seductive wine displays a ravishing floral perfume together with nutmeg, cedar, apricot and grapey fruit supported by a streak of racy, vibrant acidity.

Enjoy at optimum maturity from early summer in 2020 to the end of 2023.

Serve: lightly chilled, 46 – 50 °F
Delicious as an aperitif it makes a wonderful partner to spicy Chinese and Thai foods or mature hard cheeses.
