A classically perfumed, fragrant, very grapey muscat here from Joie Farm, a bit of a specialist in this lonely genre. There’s a lovely amalgam of elderflower and lemongrass, lemon and grapefuit, fresh tarragon and lavender on a dry, light, crisp frame. The moderate length finish is punctuated by a characteristic point of bitterness. Perfectly representative of the variety.

I do love this spicy rendition of Muscat, chock full of cloves and other spices on top of peach, lemon and star fruit on the nose. It’s has a fresh and dry impression on the palate, with rousing spice notes, exotic fruits, lemon and lime with a crisp finish.

This has a very lifted and interesting muscat nose of lavender, lemon, wasabi, anise and floral notes. It’s mid-weight, dry and tart edged, quite grippy and high in acidity, which will certainly make it very refreshing on a hot summer day. But there is an austerity here that is a bit unexpected. Very lemony on the finish. Tasted April 2017

Another pleasurable sipper that checks in at only 10.8 percent alcohol, so you can easily enjoy a couple of glasses without it weighing you down. When you’re swirling it in the glass, the aromatics are so darn pretty. Litchi, jasmine, rose petals, and grapefruit zest will fill the room, then charge their way onto your palate with a bunch of crunchy green grapes in tow.
