Muscat grapes are left on the vines to become very ripe before harvesting at heightened natural sugar levels of 16° to 18° baume. Once harvested the fruit is crushed, partially fermented and fortified on skins to further extract the floral and aromatic flavours. The wine is pressed off skins and transferred to barrels for an extended maturation before the final assemblage. Alcohol 18.0%
