Vinified for one year in large traditional oak vats (but only until April on the full lees), the 2017 Ried Gamitz Gelber Muskateller –1 STK– is deep, ripe and pure on the intense and mineral, slightly spicy and aromatically reduced nose with its stony and herbal aromas. Deep, lush and intense on the rich but highly precise and very elegant palate, this is still a baby Muscat that finishes with stimulating grip and lingering salinity. This is another gorgeous Muscat with firm tannins that need some time to fully integrate. Bottled in late June 2018. Tasted in May 2019. The 2018 vintage will be bottled in September and hit the market in December.
