Tasting Notes

2007 Juliet Cullinan Wine Connoisseur's Awards - First Place: Dessert Wine
2007 Juliet Cullinan Wine Connoisseur's Awards - Gold

Pale golden straw with inviting Muscat aromas and underlying layers of litchi, marmalade and tea-leaf; silky and luscious with well balanced acidity lifting the sweetness. Delicious varietal character reminds of summer's generosity and captures sunshine in a glass; gentle and uncloying on the finish.
Elsie Pels - Cape wine Master
