Winemaker's notes:

The colour of this Muscat is lively pale lemon. Youthful on the nose, quite pronounced, though not jumping from the glass, but rather proudly showing its pure varietal Muscat notes. Peaches, grapefruit and orange peels are some of the scents forming a fine camaraderie with a predominant Muscat. Bone dry on the palate with acidities being on the higher side, quite light on the body but far from being light when talking about fruit intensity. There is nice persistence on the palate with good, medium long and clear-cut finish. Being on the lighter side, this is the bottle that goes with ease, no matter the occasion.

Combining with food:

One might ask himself what to do with a dry Muscat, but the experience shows, not unexpectedly, this is a lovely aperitif. Being dry and not to intense you can serve it with fish, especially blue fish, salads or as a summer “terrace” wine by glass. Try as well with not too spicy Asian foods such as curry.

Aging potential:

Best to drink now, while youthful, keeping its primary fruit aromas but it will bring pleasure for at least 2-3 more years till 2022.
