Hither & Yon Muscat Blanc 2014

Muscat Blanc à Petit Grains - to give it its full name - is somewhat of a vineyard parental legend. Robinson et al, in their magnum opus "Wine Grapes", cite Muscat of Alexandria and Muscat Blanc à Petit Grains as "the progenitors of at least fourteen grape varieties that are currently cultivated to make wine".

Musky, the merest hints of passionfruit, mango with a touch of citrus rind - not especially bold aromatics.

Refreshing, drying - somewhat faint lemon and lime, veering to saline/ briny characteristics with a touch of chalky pucker. Enjoyable for sure. 89
