The wine shows the grapey and floral aroma typical of Muskateller along with notes of dried apricots, walnut, and chamomile tea. There is a noticeable grip to the palate thanks to four weeks of maceration on the skins that also contributes to the wine's spicy finish of nutmeg and clove. Food Pairing: Muskateller mit ACHTUNG features a moderate level of alcohol and balanced acidity making it an ideal wine for the table. Tannins from the skins give this macerated white wine unsuspecting grip, making it ideal with white meat and fish. Pair this wine with gnocchi in brown butter and sage or an aged hard cheese.

The golden yellow 2016 Muskateller mit Achtung is a terrific white that was fermented spontaneously on the skins for four weeks in oak barrels and aged on the full lees for seven months before it was bottled unfiltered in April 2017. This intense, ripe and fresh Muscat is just beautiful with its coolish, precise expression. With discreet rose petal, sesame and fennel blossom/seed aromas on the nose, this is an intense, round and mouth-filling Muscat with ripe but refreshing acidity and super fine but grippy tannins. Gorgeously structured, salty-mineral and tensioned, this medium-bodied wine weighs in with just 11.5% alcohol. It is a fabulous, stimulating food wine with lovely grip and spiciness. Try fennel and sesame with it!
