Pegasus Bay ‘Fortissimo’ Waipara Valley Muscat 2016

Other White from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 07-Dec-2017
Bright, very pale straw colour, near colourless on the rim. This has lovely ripeness of late-picked grapes with honey and musk notes, and a little raisining. The nose is one of clarity, purity and beauty. Sweet to taste, this is taut, slender and quite sleek in expression. Very good intensity of fruit flavours as suggested by the nose, this has alcohol drive and cut to balance the richness and lusciousness. This has an edgy flow with great energy. The textures are very fine. The clarity and precision of the wine is quite remarkable. Made as a vin doux naturel, with a little fortifying alcohol. 17.0% alc. and around 80 g/L RS. In the mould of a classy Muscat Beaumes de Venise, but with a New World take on the style. Serve as an aperitif over the next 3-4+ years. (375 ml) 18.5+/20 Dec 2017 RRP $40.00
