Muscat of Alexandria

Vintage:

Tasting notes:
With Fresh zippy acidity, this an unusual but really enjoyable white wine. With similar aromatics to a sauvignon blanc, but a much fuller mouth feel and a wonderfully long and refreshing finish of grapefruit. Great on its own but exceptional with food.

Food Matching:
Great with any of the fish dishes but in particular the crab special, and also the fennel dish of braised orange and fennel.
