      Winemaker Notes

      Golden yellow in color. On the nose it is amazingly rich, complex, elegant, deep and expressive. It shows unique quality, plenty of dried apricots, honey, papaya and great botrytis character. On the palate is unctuous, smooth and rich, with nice acidity giving the wine a great balance and refreshing edge. Very long, intense and velvety finish.

      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
      The 2011 Late Harvest Muscat has 90 grams of sugar and 7.2 grams of acidity. Limari was traditionally a region for Pisco, which is produced with Muscat grapes. This is harvested mid-August, when the grapes have developed botrytis and there are lots of clouds that encourage the development of the fungus. The nose is dominated by classical botrytis notes of dried apricots, honey and wax with hints of white flowers and tropical fruit with good balance in the palate, the acidity compensating for the sugar, with a distinct bitter finish. A great sweet wine at great price.

      Part of the Coquimbo region and a key location for pisco production, the Limari Valley is one of the northern most wine producing regions of Chile. The other two, also part of Coquimbo, are the Elqui and less-developed Choapa Valleys. While more vineyard area is dedicated to pisco production (via the grapes of Muscat of Alexandria, Pedro Jimenez, Moscatel de Asturia and Torontel), the acreage under vine for still wine production has increased. The intense sunlight in the Limari Valley, coupled with little rainfall as well as the cooling effect of the Humboldt Current from the Pacifc Ocean, all make the area ideal for cool climate grapes like Chardonnay and Pinot noir.

      Apart from the classics, we find many regional gems of different styles.

      Late harvest wines are probably the easiest to understand. Grapes are picked so late that the sugars build up and residual sugar remains after the fermentation process. Ice wine, a style founded in Germany and there referred to as eiswein, is an extreme late harvest wine, produced from grapes frozen on the vine, and pressed while still frozen, resulting in a higher concentration of sugar. It is becoming a specialty of Canada as well, where it takes on the English name of ice wine.

      Vin Santo, literally “holy wine,” is a Tuscan sweet wine made from drying the local white grapes Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia in the winery and not pressing until somewhere between November and March.

      Rutherglen is an historic wine region in northeast Victoria, Australia, famous for its fortified Topaque and Muscat with complex tawny characteristics.
