100% Muscat Alexandria, wine produced in co-operation with the Alois Kracher family. This grape variety is traditionally used in raisin production!
Poor quality natural cork, 13.5% alc, $28 Cdn wow! Rugged slate/limestone clay area.
Color. Light dull straw with green tints.
Nose. Peach, apricot, lime spice. All these aromatics are pretty soft but appeal. Some noted "grass and melon".
Palate. Entry was dry, minerally, peach, citrus. Medium to full bodied, lengthy finish with muscat tones. I found the finish more attractive when not too chilled. Would be a perfect apperitif wine on the patio, has seen 18 months in old oak barrels. Anastasia thought "mandarin... and lets go to Malaga for a holiday".
Maybe not too obscure but hard to find I guess. Flew off the shelf after the tasting but rather expensive I thought.
