2008 Orange Muscat (375mL)
The release of our second vintage of Orange Muscat is a wonderful way to celebrate the new decade. Crafted in the style of a French Aperitif, it has been lightly fortified with brandy, making it a delightful prelude to a wonderful meal.
The nose is fresh and clean with delicate orange blossom, white peaches and Mandarin oranges. In the mouth, integrated flavors of cinnamon, ginger and brown sugar lead the way to lemon peel and vanilla on the mid-palate with a luscious crème brulée finish. From start to finish, this is a beautiful wine delighting the senses.
"Aperitif Time" is a very important and convivial moment where you welcome your guests, offering them a glass of our 2008 Orange Muscat and little bites to prepare them for a fabulous meal to come. We suggests some wonderful French cheeses, almonds and dried fruits. Keep in mind, the production is small, the bottles are little, so have plenty in your cellar. This wine is so tasty, it will disappear quickly!
