Meszes Yellow Muscat 2013
We harvest our Yellow Muscat on the outskirts of Olaszliszka
settlement, at the steeply inclining Meszes
slope facing the south with calcareous clay soil.
Plantation size: 1,2 ha. Date of planting: 2009.
Canopy management: mid-high “Guyot”, 2,4-meter
row distance, and 1,2-meter spacing between vines.
Winemaking-ripening: To preserve the value of the high quality grapes our wine is
produced by using conventional methods. In case of our Yellow
Muscat wine the harvest takes place in late September.
The grapes are handpicked into small bins, the berries are
crushed and destemmed, then the mash is ret for 6 hours. After
gentle pressing, the gained juice is settled then fermented
in oak barrels. Following the fermentation process the wine
is bottled early to preserve the fresh crisp fruity aroma,
and the distinctive Muscat flavor as much as possible.
Alcohol: 13,5% vol
Sugar: 3 g/l
Acid: 5 g/l
The intense Muscat flavor occurs in the aroma, while the
taste of white flowers and peaches are also perceptible.
Owing to the mature, healthy and thick grapes the body
and alcohol of the wine is above medium. Due to the
lively acidity and intense aroma it is a fresh fruity wine.
