    A blend of 54% Muscat Ottonel, 29% Sauvignon blanc, 8% Chardonnay, 4% Gelber Muskateller and 5% Traminer. The Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay were co-fermented in an open vat for 14 days while Muskat Ottonel only spent three days on skins. The Traminer spent 20 days in amphora on skins, and Gelber Muskateller was pressed after a short maceration time. After ageing separately in amphoras and old oak for half a year, the four wines were brought together just before bottling. It is neither filtered nor sulphured.
    Bright yellow straw colour with a watery hue. Expressive aromas of apple skin, pear and lychee mix with hints of pineapple and cinnamon spice. Light and agile the palate has a tangy flavour profile of green apple skin, lychee and mandarin finishing with a dash of spicy ginger. Racy sour like acidity with a refreshingly tangy aftertaste.
