Muscat Murray Valley Victoria
Muscat of Alexandria is part of the exotic family of Muscat variants. A lusciously fruity grape, it produces delicate and perfumed, crisp white table wines. This delightfully versatile style of Muscat is tailor made for the Australian climate, the wine of choice for relaxed enjoyment alongside fine food and cheery company. The zingy tropical fruit flavours are upfront and prominent, whilst the light spritzyness provides a refreshingly clean finish. Serve well chilled and enjoy whilst young and vibrant.
Fashioned predominantly from Muscat of Alexandria grapes. Viticultural experts have identified at least two hundred different members of the Muscat family and several of these different clones have been cultivated in Australia for as long as grapes have been grown here. Australian winemakers have a fondness for the variety. It produces delicious, plump, juicy grapes and, depending on which clone is cultivated, when it is harvested and how it is handled, it can produce a wide range of wine styles. Harvested early, it produces delicate, perfumed, crisp, dry white wines, but if left to hang on the vine several weeks longer it produces rich flavoursome dessert wines. Bottled promptly after vinification. Alcohol 5.0%
