Released for the first time at the end of 2008, this sweet and luscious Muscadelle wine sits comfortably in the range between our dessert and fortified styles. Served over crushed ice as a summer delight, it's far too easy drinking. No oak treatment for this Muscadelle varietal resulting in a very light easy drinking fortified wine, that also pairs well with desserts.
