Parentage of the grape: DNA testing has led to the conclusion that  Muscadelle is a cross between Gouais Blanc (Heunisch Weiss) and an unknown variety.

History of the grape: It is unclear how Muscadelle made its way to Australia. The country has been famous for its excellent sweet wines since the 19th century, but the producers of Liqueur Tokay were convinced that they had Pinot Gris (because that variety is known as Tokay in Alsace) or perhaps even the Harslevelu of Hungary.

  • Chateau Capelle Bordeaux Blanc 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Sauvignon blanc, 55%, Muscadelle, 25% and Semillon, 20% A touch smoky on the nose and stony with firm, dried fruit framed aromas of citrus. Big and fairly broad in the mouth with a nice array of stony citrus fruits and hints of pollen and honeycomb on the palate. This has both some richness in the mouth and an edge of austerity that help drive t... Read More

  • Chateau de Castelnau Entre-Deux-Mers Blanc 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Sauvignon Blanc 40%, Semillon 40%, Muscadelle 20% Tight and waxy on the nose with subtle hints of red fruit, clay earth, and leathery dried herbs. Bright on entry, this shows some serious richness and volume in the mouth. Just a lovely mouthfeel, rich but bright delivering subtle fruit flavors that range from quince to gooseberry, white cherry a... Read More

  • Château la Louviere 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Tight little nose that shows almost floral perfumes and small red fruit and a bit of herb. Tight but balanced in the mouth with fine ripe tannin and mineral notes supporting elegant, fresh, and bright fruit that is particularly clean and fresh on the finish. Not a powerhouse but well balanced and seductive with good length. 90pts Read More
