Vacquiers, France – Hamburg Muscat/Semillion – Alcohol 11%
Château Plaisance Penavayre covers 30 hectares of certified organic vineyards on terraces above the Tarn valley, about 35km north of Toulouse.
A naturally sweet wine made from muscat de hamburg (Black muscat) that have been partially affected by ‘noble rot’ and partially left to dry on the vine before picking. Beautiful rose petal aromas, and there’s a touch of grapefruit peel bitterness that acts as a foil
to the sweetness.
Caramel, chocolate and cheese, particularly blue varieties.
