Muscat, Gelber Muskateller
Definition:white wine variety in Austria

Gelber Muskateller (Muscat blanc à petits grains) is unfortunately still very much a rarity in Austria. This ancient and diverse member of the Muscat family can be very demanding in the vineyard and is difficult to cultivate. The grapey wine displays a distinct bouquet of muscat, citrus fruit aromas as well as herbed spice and floral notes. Due to its vibrant and juicy acidity, it is a popular choice for an aperitif wine in Austrian restaurants.
