description

This iconic tea estate is where it all started, the creation of the first Muscatel. And decades later, the art is perfected and what it offers is phenomenal. Take in the medium body of this exceptional cup that is highly aromatic and flavorful. Fresh and uplifting notes of peaches mingled with flavors of black grapes and prunes come over from the start and stay on throughout. Delicious hints of cedar and white almonds round up the cup giving it a lively character and depth. Nuanced notes of stone fruits make up the aftertaste elevating the true Muscatel experience.
