Neusiedlersee-Hügelland is world-famous for its sweet wines and home to the oldest wine-growing commune in Austria.

I truly love sweet wines and in particular Muscat varieties and really looking forward to experiencing Neusiedlersee Gelber Muskateller Beerenauslese.

This variety is also known as Muscat, Muscat Blanc, Muskateller, Muscat of Samos, Muscat of Cephalonia, Muscat of Rhodes, Muscat of Patras, Muscat of Rio, Moscato, and Moscatto.

Fresh, very fruit forward!

Suggested Food Pairing: Many desserts including chocolate, caramel, ice cream, toffee, petit fours, fruit salad and also: Asian cuisine.
