Maria and Sepp Muster, based in Leutschach (Southern Styria), cultivate ten hectares of – since 2003 – demeter-certified vineyards. These were mentioned already in 1787, although the history of the family estate dates back to the first third of the 18th century. The Musters work very traditional in the vineyards and the cellar (with almost no additives and just very low additions of sulfur), and produce some of Austria's finest, most characterful and fascinating wines (mostly white, but also an excellent Zweigelt); these wines ask for all your passion, time and patience.
They ferment slowly and the aging on the lees can take up to three years, because it is always the wine itself that is prominent - not the clients that tend to ask for the newest vintage only. Muster wines are great reflections of origin, winemaking and vintage. Far beyond the mainstream, their unfined and authentic wines offer new drinking experiences, and even their "orange wines" (Erde and Gräfin) do not give any hints that could irritate you, but instead make you open your mind.
Erde from Muster family is an orange wine like no others. One year of skin contact grants the wine normally an earthy, edgy structure, however the vintage 2018 has turned out to be a big surprise. It’s aromatic, herbal (the usual Vermut leaf aroma) and exotic, the main aromas are mango, peach and jasmine but there is so much more!
