This luscious dessert wine is deep amber to tawny in colour with olive green hues. The wine exhibits classic perfumed aromas of the Muscat grape – lifted florals of rose wine petal, ginger spice and orange peel, with butterscotch and fruitcake. The palate is soft, silken and luscious in texture, quite viscous and concentrated, then richly flavoured showing a mélange of raisined fruit, wood aged characters, fruitcake and spices, finishing with delicate and integrated spirit. This is an indulgent and seamless wine.
Matured for 8 years in various old French and American hogsheads and barriques.
Serve with blue cheese, crème brûlée or pecan pie and a dollop of triple cream.
Can be served chilled, refrigerate after opening to maintain freshness.
