In 2020, the weather conditions were perfect for a good harvest of Gelber Muskateller. One heat wave was followed by another and there was only little rainfall. These are the ideal conditions that make the grape develop its aromas. From the end of August until the beginning of September we check the flavor every other day until the ripened grapes are full of sunshine and can be harvested.
100 meters above Lake Neusiedl there is one of the three regions where we cultivate Gelber Muskateller. At the winery we produce the juicy and refreshing white wine as well as the aromatic sparkling wine “Gelb”.
Full of sunshine
By the middle of August the grapes have soaked in a lot of sunshine and developed their typical muscat flavor that will remain on the palate after each sip of the wine.
Paul Schandl opens a grape and looks at the kernels. They show ripening characteristics that allow us to determine the exact time of harvest.
We are looking forward to a very good vintage.
