In the Glass

Appearance

Brilliant, pale straw cololr.

Aromatics

The nose reveals an intensely fruity wine with layers of baked peach, pineapple, apple, and star fruit with hints of candied ginger.

Flavor

The palate echoes the nose delivering a very sweet and fruity core with lingering notes of cotton candy and concentrated pear juice.

Intensity & Texture

This is a very sweet wine that's stuffed with fruit but I would love to see a bit more citrus-like acid to add a lift and a vibrant edge.

Cool Factor

B

This is a great introduction to the category with very approachable flavors and it's a decent value as well.

Value Grade

B

At $12 for 500ml (a great size to present wines of this style as a little goes a long way) this wine is priced well among its peers.

Analysis

The grapes have been farmed organically for some time and from the 2013 vintage they will be certified Organic Winemakers. In addition to this tasty Muscat De Rivesaltes, fortified, red and white wines are crafted on three individual terroirs.

How to Enjoy

Serve chilled but not too cold in fear of masking the subtle flavors.
