The unique depth of the sandy soils of the Ried Steinbach Fürst provide ideal conditions for growing Gelbem Muskateller. The late harvest and a restrained vinificatory signature set the scene for its attractiveness and piquant spiciness. Natural spontaneous fermentation and subsequent 18-month maturation on the fine yeast in steel tanks provide the final refinement.
A bright golden yellow of great clarity and brilliance.
The 2020 Ried Steinbacher Fürst Gelber Muskateller unfolds a beguiling composition of scents. Notes of lime, wild mint, lemongrass and yellow fruits such as apricots, mirabelles and fully ripe mango capture the olfactory sense. A savoury, grainy spiciness and a distinctly beautiful mineral depth underpin the bouquet and offer a brilliant first impression.
On the palate, it shows crystal-clear precision, a symphony of refreshing citrus aromas, paired with fine tannin and a salty-mineral trace that immediately stimulates the drinking flow. With a seductive lightness of only 12 Vol%, it convinces at the same time with a complex depth that is unparalleled. An ideal companion for creative, spice-intensive cuisine.
Potato hash browns with fennel and nutmeg, served with homemade apple puree, or a fine tomato tartare finished with fresh watermelon and prawns, served with a dressing of lime and wasabi. For lovers of Mediterranean cuisine, a risotto with oranges and olives accompanied by fillet wrapped in Parma ham is recommended.
