Wine Tasting NotesThe vineyard's distinctive qualities are brought out clearly in the wine's lovely straw-yellow coloring with golden highlights, but above-all in the explosion of aromas that are strongly reminiscent of the smell of the muscat grapes the wine is made from: in particular hints of ripe pear, white peach, honey, locust tree, linden and orange blossom, sage and lemon. Thickness shows mainly on the palate, with a mouth-filling sensation that nicely balances the sharp freshness and remaining ptillant prickle of the fermentation. Highly persistent, it clearly conjures up the light and warmth of just-picked bunches of ripe muscat grapes.
