Stunning Yellow Muscat (or Gelber Muskateller in German) from a fantastic biodynamic producer in hilly, forested Slovenia—not far from the Adriatic but also not far from Austria. Keltis farms not "by schedule but by rhythm," does not filter nor fine, allows for long elevage periods even on the white wines, and adds minimal sulfur... These are bright, vivid wines, and the Rumeni Muškat, an already rare variety, is top-flight. If you like the natural wines of Sepp Muster or Andreas Tscheppe right over the border in Austria's Steiermark, you must drink this bottle: sunshine, chamomile, incense, a sheen of marl-limestone structure underneath.

Keltis


The Keltis family wine history starts in 1776. Located in the Bizeljsko region in Slovenia the estate has been passed through many generations, the current lead winemaker is Miha Kelhar, who took over from his father in 2009. 

Since Miha took over, the vineyard has become certified organic, and all their wines are naturally made with nothing added and nothing taken away.  

The grape varieties that Keltis mainly produces are the indigenous grapes rumeni plavec, ottonel muscat, yellow muscat and traminer.
