Muscat de Frontignan
Syrupy sweet fresh soft fruits and Muscat flavours fill the palate as the wine explodes in your mouth with beautiful balance and integrated acidity and alcohol.
The grapes were sourced from trellised vineyards, planted in 1976, in alluvial Gamka river bed soil, approximately 225m above sea level. These low-yielding vines bearing only six ton/ha provide extreme concentrated fruit. The grapes are hand harvested early in the morning at the end of February at very high sugar levels.
The bunches are sorted before being destemmed and crushed in open tanks overnight. During this time the skins and juice are continuously mixed to extract maximum flavours. The skins are then pressed, and the juice fortified.
