Description

This is a wine I’d really not thought about much for too long, until my recent visit and then, before dinner, my taste buds just demanded a glass or two of good, dry, Alsace Muscat as a way to set the evening up.  Muscat d’Alsace is not to be confused with any other version of the grape that I know of; it is dry, complex and satisfying, yet always leaves one wanting more. From a limestone/sandstone based soil and made up of 25% Muscat d’Alsace and 75% Muscat Ottonel, pneumatic press then a slow, temperature controlled fermentation before spending a few months on its lees before bottling.  The slow, cool fermentation is vital if the essential flavours and freshness are to be preserved.

Vivid straw-green. Muscat Ottonel dominates the nose, presenting perfumed aromas of white flowers, lime and sweet spices. Then long and clean in the mouth, featuring flavors of orange blossom and vanilla. This outstanding floral, perfumed Muscat wine boasts impeccable sugar/acid balance.. 2019-2021 91pts - Ian d'Agata, Vinous.com, Feb '19
