Cuvée des Gouverneurs AOP Muscat-du-Cap-Corse Orenga de Gaffory Vin Doux Naturel, 2012


Grape Variety

Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains

Muscat is a speciality of the Cap Corse – a 40-kilometre long peninsula located at the northern tip of Corsica that points towards France. 2012 Cuvée des Gouverneurs Muscat du Cap Corse is golden in colour with complex aromas of apricot and orange marmalade. It is sweet with flavours of barley sugar, bitter caramelized oranges, vanilla and burnt sugar. Only Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains is permitted for its production rather than more productive varieties of Muscat. Grapes were picked by hand and left to macerate on skins for 24 hours. The juice was fermented in French oak barrels and arrested with grape spirit to give a sweetness and alcohol of 16%.
