Magpie Estate 'The Selfie Stick' Dry Muscat
Rolf's sister Christa makes the white wines. Whilst over blending in 2016 I tasted a barrel of wine that was part of a blend for a client. It was a dry Muscat that blew me away, I loved it's vivacity and grapey freshness. So much so that I contacted the grower and immediately put an order in for 4-5 tonnes of grapes from the next vintage, and here is the result! The Muscat grapes come from the famous Terra Ricca Farms in the Riverland, known for their quality fruit. 100% Muscat partly fermented and aged in tank. Partly in old oak. We blended the two together. This is classic, dry, aromatic Muscat. Floral, grapey, white peach, jasmine and honeysuckle on an evocative nose. Crisp, and fresh, bursting with grapey characters, ripe pear and lime zest on the finish, just a hint of spice. Very refreshing and sure to go well with lightly spiced Asian and Asian influenced dishes.
