Gamlitz is the perfect site for Gelber Muskateller, a grape variety that’s otherwise very difficult to cultivate. The vines are formed by hand and the soil is naturally greened. The harvest takes place individually for each vineyard at the best time of ripeness and all grapes are harvested exclusively by hand.
In Gamlitz, the vines grow on warm, bowl-shaped vineyard sites with sandy and gravel soils. The combination of soil and microclimate promotes particularly distinctive aromas and always produces mature, complex wines. The grapes have a long hang time, thanks to Styria’s cool climate and the harvest takes place late into autumn, generating a unique expression of flavours.
The grapes were handpicked, and after skin contact maceration of 18 hours, the spontaneous fermentation took place in steel tanks and the wine remained in the cellar for six months to mature.
Alcohol: 12.5% vol
Residual sugar: Dry
On the nose the wine reveals expressive, fresh notes of wild herbs such as hibiscus, elderflower and mint with a spicy nutmeg lift and underlying fruitiness of vineyard peach. On the palate the wine is dry and spicy, with white pepper and that lovely nutmeg lift coming through.
Great wine for warm summer days, as well as white meats, fish and Asian cuisine. Its low alcohol and fruit concentration allow for aromatically spiced dishes.
