Tasting

Sparkly straw yellow, animating, finely floral. Fragrant – a subtle composition: yellow peach, nutmeg, mandarin, fresh Muscat grapes, lemon candy, ethereal, inviting. Fruity prospects – a bouquet in the very sense of the word! I hasn’t been so crisp and "muscatel-alike" for a long time! 
Dry, with the matching acidity, chiselled. Elegant finesse and silky texture, fine Muscat spiciness. White flowers and a subtle finish with a hint of elder blossoms, accompanied by some anise and fennel seeds, dry and animating. A connoisseur-Muscat from the silicate soils in Rust – year for year - distinguished by its slight touch of lemon. And this has been known here for centuries!

Pairing

Salad of Penne and Rucola with roasted Macademia nuts. Stalk celery and fennel – marinated raw and steamed, cheese puffy pastry with lemon mayo, sprout salad with coriander, fried pizza with curd, cauliflower and capers, Roscoff-onion-tarte tatin with lamb´s lettuce and sheep milk cheese. Guinea fowl with lemon. As animating aperitif before listening to a private concert of Ostbahnkurti. Gives relieve during longer periods of heat. A wonderful companion to a fine herb-flavoured cuisine with stewed laurel tomatoes, terrines of goat milk cheese, light salads, fennel breadsticks. And to be honest: would you push such a nice Muscat-spritzer from the table? Harmonious fruity flatterer with an obsessive potential.
