Reviews and Ratings

It’s floatily aromatic. As soon as you unscrew the top and start to pour you can smell the gentle florals. There’s no oak here, just muscat (85%) and gewürztraminer (the rest) grown in the mountains of north-east Spain – not usually my favourite grapes but although you might think this smells of honeysuckle and has a gentle spice to it, it’s got edges as clean as a shiny window pane and a crisp pertness that makes it refreshing too.
