Muscat Beaumes de Venise (37.5ml), Domaine de Durban

£12.50

A classic dessert wine from the Rhône

Domaine de Durban is a 57-hectare estate based around a magnificent 15th century fortified farmhouse that stands against a background of pinewoods and enjoys a panoramic view over the vineyards. The Domaine has been owned and run by the Leydier family since 1969 and is currently in the capable hands of Bernard & Jean-Pierre Leydier.

Very ripe grapes are fairly late harvested (early October), crushed and fermented at low temperatures. Fermentation is then arrested by a process of mutage; as a precise volume of pure alcohol is added to the wine to kill the yeast cell driving fermentation. This leaves some unconverted sugar and fortifies the wine, which is then bottled the following March.

The result is a heady wine with a beguiling bouquet of fresh white peaches and a succulent, sweet apricot palate with a fine acidity and lots of texture.
