wine characteristics
The Gelber Muskateller is a high-quality grape variety that is known for its intense nutmeg scent. Notes of orange blossom, lemon, tangerine, pear and honeysuckle are present, but also floral accents with elderberry scents. The medium-high acidity on the palate gives fresh and beautifully fruity wines
