Single Vineyard wine.
This dessert wine was made from the White Muscat grape,Muscat Blanc a Petit Grains. The grapes used for this wine were grown on the Mistletoe Home Vineyard which was planted to this variety in 1999. It is a fortified white style.
The grapes are whole bunch pressed with only the free run juice then being fortified with neutral grape spirit. This allows the fragrance and delicacy of the Muscat grape to show to its full advantage. On the nose there are perfumed hints of orange blossom and rosewater.
Unlike a lot of dessert wines it is not cloying,syrupy or oily,just beautiful clean flavours with the sweetness being balanced by unobtrusive acid. Excellent with fruit based desserts and full bodied (e.g. blue) cheeses.
This vintage – as good as it gets – simply luscious! It is a selfish wine! I grew the grapes to make it just for me! Good to know many others love it as well.
