Gelber Muskateller

A floral beauty, like the rose gardens at Castle Howard.

We're extremely pleased that after the success of the Muskateller in 2009, Heidi is now making this wine permanently. I love Muskateller and Heidi's has the usual Heidi personality. It's different.

More about this 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.

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.
