Dutschke ‘The Muscat’ NV (500ml)
This wine is made by harvesting the grapes when very ripe, almost raisined, then crushed and fortified with grape spirit during the initial stages of fermentation. The grape spirit prevents any further fermentation and preserves the unique Muscat flavours and natural grape sweetness. The wine is then clarified and put to barrel, to mature untouched for years. By blending different vintages of Wally’s Muscat together, an average age of 10 years and a complexity of flavours from years in oak is achieved. Traces of the very old Muscat I brought back from Bailey’s also contribute to the richness and depth of this special drop.

Some fresh and quite fragrant fruit on offer here. This has a very smooth-honed palate. Smooth and fresh and quite elegant at the finish. Drink now.
