With only 13 percent alcohol and 7 percent sugar, this Muscat enlivens the end of an extravagant meal with concentrated aromas of beeswax, pineapple and lychees.
The finish is bright, with a spicy finale that neatly counterpoints the plush mid-palate.
The weightiness of the 2009 vintage belies its low alcohol and refreshing finish.
Bottled April 2012.
Whole cluster pressed
Cold fermented, 45 °F
This vintage pairs nicely with powerful washed-rind cheeses such as Red Hawk and quince tarts, or Tête de Moine florets atop apple tarts.
