Pegasus Bay Fortissimo Waipara Valley North Canterbury Muscat (NV)

The non-vintage wine (5*) currently on sale was estate-grown in North Canterbury. Modelled on Muscat de Beaumes de Venise, a traditional fortified Muscat from the Rhône Valley, it is a distinctive, very full-bodied wine (16 per cent alcohol), weighty and rich, with delicious, peachy, vaguely honeyed flavours, sweet (120 grams/litre of residual sugar) and strong. It's delicious now.
