Pegasus Bay Muscat 2017, North Canterbury

Muscat from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 13-Apr-2021
Bright, moderate yellow-gold with some depth, even colour throughout. The nose is full and complex, filled with aromas of honeysuckle, nutmeg, underlined mango, mandarin and lime zest. Full-bodied, off-dry to taste, mouth-filling aroma of mandarin, lime zest, and dried mango enriched by honey, nutmeg, and ginger. Spicy and rich palate broadens by mead like luscious honey; intense and unctuous on the palate. Acidity is lively and seamless, brings a balanced freshness to the rich palate. This is a rich and lush Muscat with a mouth-filling palate and a complex range of flavours. Match with chicken liver and aged hard cheese over the next 6-8 years. Handpicked, only free-run juice was used, fermented in tanks to 14% alc, 12 g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Apr 2021 RRP $30
