DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Pale pink, peach. A showcase of the lifted floral aromatics that Muscat produces, rose petal and musk notes which are clean and light on the nose, finishing with confected raspberry & Turkish delight.

Wine Making

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.

Cellaring

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!

Date Tasted: November 2018

Palate:

The palate is true to the bouquet with raspberry & Turkish delight characters all prominent. Gentle fresh spritz adds texture to the mid palate, before finishing with balanced sweetness and creaminess.
