Important ampelographic features:
Leaf: pentagonal with three to five lobes, deeply sinuate.
Grape cluster: medium-sized, medium density, cone-shaped with one to three wings, no secondary wings. Berries are elliptical with green to yellow skin and intense Muscat flavour.

Ripening: middle to late

Significance, conditions: this variety needs good sites with at least medium-deep soils, and often requires yield reduction. The Blütenmuskateller reaches high sugar content values and is well suited to the production of sweet wines. It is one of the fungus-resistant varieties and thus protected against oidium and Peronospora.

Wines: the variety produces fuller-bodied and more opulent wines than Gelber Muskateller, with a strong Muscat aroma, reminiscent of flower blossoms.
