Red Muscatel

OUR Red Muscatel

Our Red Muscatel is not typical for our region and therefore it makes us a lot more fun to work with this variety! After an 8-hour maceration of the grapes the must is fermented relatively cool to keep the fine aroma. Even a few grams of residual sugar may remain, so that the aroma is additionally underlined!


This cult drink is also known as "Che". The story behind this name comes from an amusing story of the past of Christian Schabl. Some friends used to call him affectionately "Che". This is based on his alleged resemblance to Ernesto "Che" Guevara (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Che_Guevara). And because of this nickname the Idea arose to make a wine that you may then give that name!

Dining companion for:
with carpaccio and cold hors d'oeuvres or as an aperitif

Vineyard: Losberg

BSA: Malolactic fermentation - by the addition of starter cultures (bacteria), the malic acid, a part of the total acid in wine, is largely reduced to lactic acid and CO2. Thus, the total acidity is reduced, and in addition it gaves the wine richness and complexity.
