Muskat Ottonel Alte Selection 2023
An almost-forgotten variety from the 19th century, re-discovered and re-cultivated. We have carefully selected our vines from an old vineyard that was planted by our ancestors. The name "Alte Selection" ('Old Selection') pays homage to the old genetics of the vines we work with today. It represents a vibrant part of our history and philosophy.
