The Muskateller grape is highly aromatic and floral. This is an unoaked, dry white wine that's excellent paired with tender, delicate grilled fluke.

Staff Pick Notes

This wine is a blend of Muskateller, Welschriesling and Sauvignon Blanc. Muskateller gives flavors of orange blossom and elderflower as it has floral qualities. Welschriesling gives acidity and flavors of green apple and lemon and a pleasant honey finish. Sauvignon Blanc gives some tropical notes. The result is a full body white wine with pronounced fruit flavors but at the same time with freshness, supported by a racy acidity and a very smooth finish. The vineyards are 60 years old, the grapes are grown organically and natural resources are used to maintain a healthy environment for the vineyard. An incredible blend where every ingredient plays its role greatly, creating a very well-balanced wine!
