Muscat-based wines are at last getting the attention they deserve. Such gorgeous perfume and exotic flavours. Sweet kisses. Some editions can be ‘too much/too sweet’ but the well-crafted wines deliver an experience that combines charm with playfulness – the life is good/sweet feeling. Muscat is all about context – taking a ‘time out’. Such as chilling out on a summer afternoon/evening. Or after an alfresco lunch when you feel like another bottle of wine. Or giving pleasure to a non-wine drinker. For sure there are possible food partners but that just complicates things, and could ruin your date with Muscat.
