2015 Muscat de Boom

Thrilled to have this exciting wine for only the second time to release to our wine club. Our 2015 Muscat de Boom is a sweet, fortified, wildly aromatic wine! This wine is made in a style often called Vin doux Naturel (in the south of France). So, it's made from Muscat Ottonel grapes, a wild fermentation is started on the skins and allowed to go for a few days...then the wine is fortified with neutral grape spirits to arrest the fermentation and leave behind the residual sugar. We are left with a luscious, aromatic, textured and beguiling wine. Strong (16.6% alcohol), sweet (105 grams residual sugar...that's more than 10% sugar) and aromatic this wine will light fireworks on your palate and send sensory signals to every part of your being! Aromas of Muscat grapes, dried apricots, caramelized peaches, baked apples, nuts, pineapple curd and golden raisins rise from the glass and the flavors tickle your taste buds. Crazy delicious just sipped by itself, our Muscat de Boom will also be great with classic sweet wine combos like blue cheese and foie gras preparations. Also great with nuts, and fruit based desserts especially containing apples, pears, apricots and peaches. Honestly it's an elixir that will just make you tingle and smile. Chill lightly and enjoy! There is a tiny amount, only 126 cases. Six 500ml bottle max per customer.
