Deep straw, nearly amber colour. This legendary sweet wine shows honey, apricot, pineapple and Turkish delight on the nose. The sweet dried fruit follows on the palate. The natural acidity balances the sweetness of the wine, leaving a very moreish finish.

The wine comes from a block right next to the famous Manor House at 80m to 90m above sea level.
Patience is a virtue when producing a wine with nectar so sweet. The semi-sundried Muscat d'Frontignan bunches was harvested at the start to middle of April. Fermentation started on the skins to extract maximum flavour and aromas and was completed in 3rd and 4th fill French oak. After fermentation the wines were racked and put back into the barrels to mature for another 24 months.
