Muscadelle is harvested at approximately 16° Baume, grapes are crushed and destemmed, pumped into open fermenters and held at 10°C for a day. Parcels are vinified on skins for optimal extraction of luscious Muscadelle flavours, batches are drained, pressed and fortified with neutral Brandy, retaining a measure of natural fruit sweetness. Upon completion, batches are settled and racked, stabilised and filtered into a collection of well seasoned French oak barrels for up to thirty years. Alcohol 18.5%
