  • Michael Wenzel's family has been making wine since the fifteenth century in Burgenland, their home and cellar still in the small town of Rust, on the western side of Lake Neusiedl. Ever the tinkerer, Michi started the 'Wild & Free' line of wines, which on average have about 10-15 days of skin contact and are bottled without fining, filtration, and with low sulfur added. This process lends a deft texture and balance to the highly aromatic Gelber Muskateller, sourced from the Lockvogl vineyard. A field of flowers, mint, pineapple and nectarine flood the nose, the palate is light and sharp, tangy and bright, with the faintest whisper of chalky texture, citrusy wild strawberries, apricots, and flowering herbs on the finish.
