About the Wine:

The versatile Muscat of Alexandria grape thrives in the temperate climate of the coastal plain of Samson where it enjoys maximum exposure to sunlight during the day, and the cool evening breezes give optimal climatic conditions for healthy growth. The soil is of good quality and medium weight.

The grapes for the dessert wine were carefully pruned to allow the cool breezes to penetrate the fruit, thus avoiding any mould or disease. The vines were inspected at close intervals and then mechanically night harvested at the very end of the vintage, mid October, at an optimum sweetness. First fermentation took place in contact with the skin in order to extract maximum flavour and aromatic compounds. The fermenting juice was then drained into stainless steel temperature controlled tanks and the fermentation process was continued until the desired sugar content was obtained. Fermentation was arrested by fortification of the wine to a strength of 14.5% alc/vol by the addition of Carmel's fine, mature brandy. After maturation in in oak barrels, the wine was racked, fined, filtered, stabilised and bottled in long, elegant 500ml bottles.

Tasting Notes: A delicious dessert wine, full bodied and richly balanced with typical Muscat nose. Amber in colour, with golden hues.
