This indigenous Italian grape variety is likely related to the Gelber Muskateller. It was first adopted among the permitted varieties for Austria in 2018.
Important ampelographic features:
Leaf: circular to pentagonal, three to five lobes, sharply pointed teeth, open petiole
Grape cluster: medium, loose; dark yellow berries with firm skin
Significance, conditions: the Goldmuskateller was adopted as a permissible variety for Austria in 2018. It prefers warm and frost-free sites with calcareous soils.
Wine: the wines show the characteristic Muscat notes, are fullbodied and golden yellow in colour. Even with marked fruitiness, acidic interplay is lively. The wines can be vinified dry, but are primarily finished sweet.
