Folly Arborétum – Muscat Ottonel 2013

Hello again, today I will be talking about this exceptional tasting Muscat Ottonel.

The winery is very very small, it has only 5 hectares of vineyards and about another 5 hectares of protective forest and arboretum (a botanical garden devoted to trees). So when you visit Badacsony make sure to have a stroll in their forest and maybe try one of their wines.

This Muscat Ottonel is one of the best I’ve ever smelled and tasted, you can smell a lot of flower.. it’s like running through a flower bed with hints of apricot on the background. Now I have to warn you when you try this wine, the after taste has quite a bit of acidity which is not necessary bad but some people (including me) don’t have the stomach for this. This is in harmony with the intensive citruses and apricot taste. This wine is perfectly balanced and is a great suggestion with seafood dishes and white meats.

This bottle of wine is no longer available in the shop where I bought it from (Bortarsaság) but I am pretty sure it’s still available in some shops and at the winery. I paid 1790 HUF for this bottle and that is roughly 5.75 euros.

Thank you for reading this and if you enjoyed it please subscribe by email to be informed when I post new articles!
