This fun and delicately spritzy off-dry wine was made using Muscat Ottonel, which, according to famed British writer Jancis Robinson, has roots to France’s Loire Valley and is among the youngest of the Muscat family, originating in the 1850s. There’s no doubting its heritage with the tropical and musky nose that includes rosewater, lime and quinine. The drink offers an early and pleasing burst of acidity to prepare for a quaffable blend of tropical flavors, including lychee. Despite the residual sugar of 5%, it’s presented clean and with balance.
