Thierry Rodriguez Avarus Muscat de Frontignan 2016

Pale yellow in colour. Intense nose of Muscat grapes flavours as if freshly picked from the vine, hints of citrus and passion fruit. Full-bodied, powerful mouth-filling richness beautifully balanced by the natural acidity. On the palate the oak and added spirit are very well integrated, the fruity finish is long and complex. An open bottle may be kept for up to 2 weeks. Recommended temperature for service is 10°C to 12°C. The cellaring potential is up to 10 years depending on how you like to drink your Muscat de Frontigan knowing that the flavours will evolve with time.

A fortified wine “Vin Doux Naturel” produced with Muscat à Petits Grains grapes from old vines averageing 40+ years of age. The grapes are hand-picked at optimum maturity providing a yield of 28 hl/ha. Pre-fermentation skin macerations in stainless steel vats for 48 hours, this will extract colour and extra flavours. After 10 to 15 days of fermentations with indigenous yeasts the must is fortified with grape spirit (96% pure), the procedure is called “mutage” and it stops the fermentation. As per the appellation regulation, the added spirit cannot exceed 10% of the must’s volume and the finished wine must have 15% alcohol and 125 g/l of residual sugar. The wine is aged in french oak barrels for 6 months, the barrels are 1 and 2 years old and are topped up to prevent any oxidation.
