Description

Auction Lot Details

First created as a single barrel in 1991, this Liqueur Muscat is now a blend of many vintages. When vintage conditions prevailed further barrels were produced and added to the solera. The average age of the wine is now is in excess of 20 years. As it has aged and been naturally concentrated it has developed great complexity. True to the Muscat grape the wine has very “grapey” aromas and complex notes of orange marmalade and wood derived notes from barrel ageing. This unctuous and special auction lot will make an ideal acompaniment to pate, blue cheese, nuts or chocolate.
