DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Pale, salmon pink. A showcase of lifted floral aromatics that Muscat typically produces, with gorgeous musk notes offering a bright and confected finish to the nose.

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!

Technical

The Grapes: Made from Rutherglen Muscat (Muscat à Petit Grains Rouge), the same variety as used for the great fortified wines of Rutherglen. The grapes selected for this wine are from our new plantings in the Bobbie Burns Three vineyard.
Date Tasted: September 2020
Alcohol: 6.5%
T.A (g/l): 5.5g/l
pH: 3.20pH

Palate:

The palate is true to the bouquet with sweetness prominent. Turkish Delight & Sherbert characters couple beautifully with fresh spritz, which adds texture to the mid palate, before finishing with balanced crispness.
