The Muscat Blanc variety can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and was a favourite of the Romans. It produces exceptional, late-harvest, semi-sweet wines including the famous Moscato wines of Italy. Harvested after ripening at the end of February. After pressing at a low temperature, the must is naturally decanted and the alcoholic fermentation can start. Just before the end of fermentation, it’s temporarily halted by chilling the fermentation wine to below 5°C.
This wine has a delightful, lively bouquet that offers up attractive aromas of rosewater, orange blossom, pear, lychee, and sherbet. On the palate, the wine is clean and fresh with semi-sweet notes of glace fruits, Turkish delight, and pear complimented by subtle hints of iced tea and Meyer lemon.
Drink with fruits, spicy Asian cuisine, Asian desserts, or blue cheese.
