This wine was gifted to me and proves that sometimes you just get lucky. I will admit to being a fan of dry muscats, which, incidentally I have only ever found in the French Catalunya region. The golden, straw color of the pour barely hints at the bursting fresh melon, stone fruit pits, apricot, and passion fruit that explode on the nose and palate. An interesting heaviness to the mid-palate, with a tight vanilla-like finish. Luscious and delicious, I’d buy this one again . . . even if I didn’t buy it the first time.
