Pegasus Bay Waipara Valley Muscat 2016

Muscat from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 07-Dec-2017
Very pale coloured, near colourless. The nose is very tight and taut with intense and penetrating aromas of musk, fresh grapes and herbs, with lifted floral notes, unveiling a little smoke! Is this the indigenous yeasts?. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the depth and tautness is the feature on the palate. This is not broad in anyway, as Muscat can be. Very fine phenolics and soft, refined acidity complete the picture, revealing mineral and smoke detail on the finish. I tend to enjoy Muscat varietal wines in their youth. This has the ability to keep well, maybe 3-4+ years. 14.0% alc. and around 18 g/L RS according to Edward’s memory. 18.0/20 Dec 2017 RRP $30.00
