The Best Muscats from Austria

Muscat is one of the oldest white grape varieties in the world, making it a true globetrotter. Austria, with its meandering Danuberiver, steep hills and lakes, offers a picturesque backdrop as well as a perfect climate for scented, fresh Muscat. This fragrant grape variety comes in a variety of styles, from crisp and light to lavish and sweet, and even sparkling – even though it is mostly made in a dry, crisp style. Revealing intense honeysuckle and orange blossom notes followed by luscious pear and plump mandarin, Muscat wines taste like summer in a glass. Here is Falstaff’s selection of the best.
