Huber's Muskateller

Due to the demands of the day job, short notes must suffice at the moment. The Muskateller varietal can be a very "obvious" in its aromatics, in the same way as, say, a Gewürztraminer. I love them, though.

Light straw-yellow. A lovely note of grapes, muscat and elderflower. Quite a persistent and intense bouquet. If anything, the palate is even more splendid, showing those same muscaty signature notes, as well as cassis, whitecurrants, elderflower and more grapes. Dry from a sensory perspective, but embued with a fruity sweetness and soapy, chalky extract that provide length and persistence. At EUR 11.20, this is almost a cheap as you can get when it comes to the wines of Bernie Huber. It's worth it, though.
