This is one of our favourite Gelber Muskatellers, especially after it is a few years old. A very aromatic white that backs it up on the pallet.

Varieties
  • Alpine Wines Grape Varieties: Muscat

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.
