Straw yellow. Animating, floral, fine. Fragrant – in random order: yellow peach followed by nutmeg, mandarin and ripe grapes directly picked from the vine, lemon candy or the other way round. Ethereal, intensive and inviting. Fruity prospects – a bouquet in the very sense of the word! Dry, balanced and chiselled. Elegant finesse and silky texture, fine Muscat spiciness. White flowers and a subtle finish of elder blossoms, accompanied by some anise and fennel seeds. A classy Muscat from silicate soils in Rust – year for year. Distinctive with its slight touch of lemon.
Shalotts tarte Tatin with rucola and sheep milk cheese, partridge breast with celery. As animating aperitif before a private concert of Ostbahnkurti. Brings relief during long periods of hot weather. A wonderful companion to a finely herb-flavoured cuisine, stewed tomatoes with laurel, terrines of goat milk cheese, light salads. To be quite honest: would you turn down a nice Muscat-spritzer? Harmonious, fruity flatterer with an addictive nature.
