The Muscat de Kélibia, A.O.C. 1er Cru area where this delicious white wine is produced, is located on the Cap-Bon peninsular. A perfect area for wine production, this region is characterised by its mild climate, its cool wet winters, and its cooling sea breeze.The fact that the area’s entire appellation is devoted to a single Muscat clearly demonstrates the importance of this variety and the degree to which it is superbly suited to this soil.
The grapes are hand harvested in plastic boxes, cooled upon arrival. Then subjected to lenght pellicular maceration followed by slow, low-temperature fermentation to preserve all the delicate aromas associated with Muscats d’Alexandrie .
A magnificent deep golden yellow colour. A highly fragrant, elegant and flowery nose with hints of acid drops, jasmine, orange flowers, acacia and candied orange peel.
Rich and powerful, the mouth expresses a wealth of elegant flavours of white fruits (peach and pear) and exotic fruits.
This wine is the perfect accompaniment for salads and for avocado with prawns. It really comes into its own with rabbit cooked with Muscat or a delicious ham and melon salad.
And to finish…. be sure to try it with an excellent fruit tart.
