Muskat Ottonel Alte Selection 2020
An almost forgotten variety from the 19th century. Re-discovered and re-cultivated. We have selected our vines from an old vineyard that was already planted by our ancestors. The name “Alte Selection” ('Old Selection') refers to the old genetics of the vines that we are working with today. A living piece of our history and of our philosophy.
[Vinified dry.]

Vinification
The grapes were selectively harvested by hand in mid-September. They were slightly crushed and shortly macerated before we gently pressed them off with low pressure. Temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless-steel. Matured on the lees for 4 months. Bottled in March 2021.
Wine description
Stunning scent of roses & orange blossoms, very fine, lemon balm, some peach; typical aroma of mace and nutmeg on the palate, lychee, again some orange, incredibly juicy and animating. A great light aperitif and refresher!
