Willi Opitz Muskat Ottonel Schilfwein, Burgenland

Willi Opitz Muskat Ottonel Schilfwein, Burgenland

Constructed by a production method invented by Willi Opitz called Schilfwein (reed wine). The grapes for this speciality are harvested by hand when ripe; only after being dried on reed mats for six to eight months are they pressed very gently. From a hundred kilograms of grapes you only get around eight to ten litres of Schilfwein. Muskat Ottonel with its unique and intense bouquet is a fantastic candidate for a Schilfwein as the original taste of the grape does not get adjusted by Botrytis. It shows a charming bouquet of rose leaves, honey and lots of exotic fruits with mango, apricot and lychee flavours on the palate followed by a rich long-lasting honey and lemon finish.
