Description

A light wine with refreshing flavours from Steigler Cellar. Zöld Veltelini (Grüner Veltliner) gives the backbone of the wine, seasoned by a touch of Muscat Ottonel. Light lemon colour. The nose is characterised by fresh citrus fruits and floral notes complemented by the typical, softer notes of Muscat.
