Region: Roussillon, France
Grapes: Muscat d'Alexandrie
Style: Orange short maceration
The Muscat grape is intensely aromatic, tropical fruits, bergamot, vervain, and a hint of Ylang Ylang. With the 2 weeks skin contact and 6 months maceration in barrels with a little oxidation, they become richer, wilder, and more expressive. It seems like it's sweet but no, it’s totally dry. This is a perfect entry Orange wine for those not familiar with the style and for the converted, simply a delicious bottle of wine.
Pairing: With rich fruity texture, it can easily support spicy food, like Chili Carb or Sambal Stingray, suitable with nonspicy food as well, like seafood Risotto or Paella.
