- The Wine
The grapes for this wine grow on vines in the soils of Heidi's Vogelsang vineyard. Truly one of the nicest Gelbers I have tasted. It's got a fantastic nose, powerful, floral, with citrus peel, rose petals and meadow herbs. On the palate, quite intense, classic Muscat flavours.
Food recommendation - mussels or other shellfish, crab, lobster.
2009 Vintage: Amazingly aromatic nose, orange blossoms and elderflower, herbal teas, a hint of citrus and totally dry in the mouth. We had it with cold marinated roast beef and it worked beautifully.
2011 Vintage: The 2009 had that intense "wow, what was that?" quality when you first encounter it and the 2011 is similarly fascinating. It is a medieval herb and rose garden in a glass. What sitting on a warm day in the rose garden of Castle Howard, or in Vienna, would be like if you could bottle it.
Flo says of the 2012 (July 2018). Tasting the 2012 I immediately get parma violets on the nose, a sweetness and the unusual smell of a garden. Perfect cold, in the sun with friends on a summers day.
Ben says of the 2013 (October 2018): Another fantastic wine from a fantastic winemaker. This is gorgeous! The mouthfeel and finish are spectacular.

Rose Petal and Orange Palate
I enjoyed Heidi Schroek's Gelber Muskateller up at my mum's over New Year, and that Gewurz-like rose petal and orange palate went ideally with an Ottolenghi Christmas couscous of vegetables, allspice and star anise.
