Our “Yellow Muscat Styrian Classic” signifies a very fresh and fruity wine. The vines of this wine flourish in numerous small vineyards in Southern Styria. This wine is allowed to be offered for sale at the earliest on the 1st of March after the grape harvest.

Wine-growing area:

Southern Styria, from vines exclusively grown in Leutschach a.d.W. and Gamlitz.

Climate:

A warm and humid Mediterranean climate cause a long vegetation period. Cool nights effect unique varieties of aromas.

Soil:

The soil structure is characterised by firm sediment layers, deposited in this sea basin million years ago. The soil consists of fine marine sediments (geologically described as “Schlier”), as well as of different kinds of sand, conglomerate and gravel.
