Darling Cellars Wild Flower Red Muscadel NV

A sweet dessert wine, with strong raisin and berry flavours. Light ruby colour with brick specks. Heady, raisin perfumes with notes of luscious litchi and mango tastes and a smooth, lingering finish. 

Enjoy with a cheese and fruit platter as a welcome drink before dinner. Or as sweet nightcap in front of the fire…Delicious on its own, especially on a cold winter’s day!

The two factors which play the most important role in determining the character and quality of a wine are nature (soil, climate and location) and the human hand (cultivar choice, viticultural practices and winemaking techniques). Of these two, nature is considered to be the more important factor with a greater influence.

about the harvest: Balling at Harvest: 24°B

in the cellar : Grapes which had become raisin as a result of being harvested when very ripe, imparted a wonderful honey flavour to the wine. The static drainers were pumped over twice on a daily basis to extract more sugar from the raisin berries. After 48 hours skin contact the juice were drained from the static separators, settled and then fortified. The dessert wine was aged for one year in stainless tanks
