Significance & conditions

This variety needs a good vineyard with soils that allow at least a medium root depth. Yield management is often required. Blütenmuskateller grapes can achieve high sugar content, making it well suited to the production of sweet wines. It is one of the fungus-resistant varieties, and is therefore protected against oidium and Peronospora.
