Brilliant light rose pink. A showcase of the lifted floral aromatics that Muscat produces, rosewater and musk complimented with citrus blossom and freshly crushed grapes. The palate is true to the bouquet with rich strawberry, musk and Turkish delight characters all prominent. Gentle natural spritz adds texture to the mid palate, before finishing with a burst of citrus fruit, ripe lime, mandarin and crisp clean acidity.
The fruit was picked in the cool of the early morning. Only the free run juice was collected and after cold settling fermentation was started using an aromatic yeast strain. The ferment was tasted twice daily and when the correct balance between alcohol and natural sugar was obtained the ferment was stopped, maintaining the natural sweetness and spritz.
This wine is best enjoyed whilst young and fresh and will not benefit from further long term cellaring. Ideal for pre or post dinner drinks, the perfect ‘daytime wine’, or even with a lazy Sunday brunch!
"This appealing wine shows the versatility of our famous Rutherglen Muscat grapes." - Colin Campbell
