The helping of Muscat Ottonel (8%) proved to be a generous addition by adding a bit of muskiness to the nose of fresh-cut Granny Smith apple, lemongrass, beeswax and twist of lemon. Flavors of lime, kiwi fruit and more lemongrass make for a brisk drink that’s packaged with lime peel and finished plenty dry enough for mussels, scallops or clam chowder.
