The first time I tried this wine I was sitting outside a tapas bar in London on a very warm summer evening. I was completely won over. The crafty blend of Moscatel and Gewürztraminer is a winning combination. This is quintessential summer wine; fragrant and floral, with succulent pears, grapes and lychees. It has just enough refreshing acidity to balance out the rounded finish. Try it, sitting outside, as soon as the next fine evening comes along, by itself or, even better, with a plate a prawns.
