Muskat Ottonel Alte Selection 2018
An old variety from the 19th century. Re-discovered and re-cultivated. We have selected our vines from an old field blend that was planted by Ludwig I. Hiedler in the 1930’s. The name “Alte Selection” (literally 'Old Selection') refers to the old genetics of the clone that we are working with today. A living piece of our history.

Temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless-steel tanks. Matured for several months in stainless-steel tanks on the lees.

Calm in the nose, white flowers, roses, a hint of lemon balm; typical aromatics of mace and nutmeg, lychee, elegant and fragile, animating. A great light aperitif and refresher!
