Natural

Wine made from organically or biodynamically grown grapes with minimal intervention avoiding the use of chemicals, additives and technology.


Tasting Notes

The nature of Gelber Muskateller, Yellow Muscat, is all about the aromatics. What we have here is classic with aromatics but heavily influenced by a raw, nearly lactic character that comes from the natural winemaking.

Staff Pick Notes

Schmecke das Leben (Taste the Life) is a society of five winemakers who share the goal of making Styria a world capital of natural wine. At the front of this pack are Maria and Sepp Muster. Their estate is in Leutschach, which has south exposure, a high elevation of 1250-1900 ft, and treacherously steep slopes.

Gelber Muskateller is German for the same Moscato that makes Asti’s sweet sparkler. It has seen a renaissance in Austria where vignerons are using it to make exciting still, dry wines.The Musters’ rendition bears strikingly profound aromas of lychee, citrus, and white flowers.
