Grape Variety: Muscat de Frontignan
Tasting Note: Bright and gold in appearance with aromas of citrus marmalade on the nose. The palate is full bodied and complex.
A good sugar to fruit ratio combined with a great acidity ensures the wine is in balance. The wine concludes with a long, spicy finish.
Food Match: Ideal with soft and blue cheeses as well as pear and frangipane tart.
95 James Suckling: Decadent and rich aromas of honey, apricot tart, treacle, caramel and dried white flowers. Very full-bodied with a dense palate of delightful fruit and wonderful sweetness. Long finish. Drink now or hold. Always fantastic.
Sugar Level: 172g/l
Closure: Natural Cork
