Rebenhof 'Spätfüllung' 100% Gelber Muskateller, Steiermark Austria
Biodynamic, spontaneous fermentation, unfined, unfiltered, no SO2
Owner Harmut Aubell makes exciting, terroir driven but experimental wines in southern Austria. The farming is Demeter certified biodynamic and he's committed to a "nothing added, nothing taken away" approach in the cellar.
This dry Muskateller serves up some wild aromatics of white flowers, candied apricot and Bonny Bell Lip Smackers. The palate is a touch yeasty, with punchy lime juice and zest, and tropical fruit like pineapple and kiwi. The finish is long and a little salty. This is a pretty fascinating wine and worth lingering over.
