Description

Weingut Esterhazy Gelber Muskateller No. 17 Amphora 2021 is a unique wine made from the Gelber Muskateller grape variety, which is grown in the Burgenland region of Austria. What sets this wine apart is the winemaking technique used, as it was fermented and aged in an amphora, giving it a distinctive character and a slightly rustic edge.

The grapes are carefully handpicked and then fermented in the amphora with indigenous yeasts for several weeks. The wine is then aged in the same vessel for a few months, allowing it to develop its unique flavor profile. The result is a refreshing and aromatic wine with notes of citrus, peach, and flowers, and a subtle minerality.

The winemaker, Weingut Esterhazy, is a family-owned winery with a long history of producing high-quality wines. Their commitment to sustainable and organic farming practices is evident in the purity and expression of their wines.
