Roseus Dry Muscat of Alexandria Limnio Rosé

@Andrew Schirmer reviewed this wine 4/20/20. Nothing to add, a unique wine of heritage grapes from the Greek Island of Lemnos. Screams Spring and very refreshing. — 2 months ago

Sierras de Málaga Moscatel

This vino dulce natural (“vin doux naturel”) is a fantastic example Málaga’s traditional sweet wines – the favorite of Catherine II of Russia and Victorian ladies and the city’s main export until vineyards were wiped out by phylloxera at the end of the 19th Century. It is made with Muscat of Alexandria grapes, fermented and fortified to reach 15% (In Málaga, this style coexists with another type of non-fortified sweet wine confusingly named “vino naturalmente dulce” or “naturally sweet wine” made with sun-dried grapes. Due to the high sugar concentration, they don’t require fortification or mutage). Pale golden color. Delicate, perfumed with aromas of pineapple, flowers, cream pastries and peach yogurt. Feels quite light, balanced, not overwhelmingly sweet. Incredible value — 2 months ago

An interesting story. Sweet wine was all the rage back then it seems. d’Yquem very popular with the Russians pre communism as detailed in the excellent book “Stalin’s Cellar”. He took over the cellar from the Tzars.

SP68 Bianco Terre Siciliane Albanello Muscat of Alexandria 2019

Big sip of iced peach greens tea with aromas of an oxidized copper green penny. Tastes like apricots and Fuji apples. Very much as expected and very much appreciated. — a day ago

Domaine de la Voûte des Crozes Côte-de-Brouilly Gamay

Black tea, pipe tobacco, and some candied fruit, with nice acidity and tannins on the finish. This is such a nice wine. Tons of character. — 2 months ago
