This wine is damn good and has outstanding balanced fruit and crispness you’ll dream of !
Gelber Muskateller is a Dürnsteiner village wine without DAC status, because the Wachau DAC regulations only permits the Grüner Veltliner and Riesling varieties for a specific vineyard designation.
In the year 2000, we grubbed up our Gelber Muskateller (yellow muscat) vines in favor of Grüner Veltliner and the Riesling in the Loibner Loibenberg and Dürnsteiner Kellerberg vineyards. Thus, our winery fell silent about this white wine variety, which is one of the oldest in the Wachau. In 2013, we were fortunate enough to lease two small parcels of very old Gelber Muskateller vines on the Loibenberg, enabling us to reintroduce this ancient variety back into our portfolio after 13 years of continuous abstinence. *source FX Pichler
