Angels Tears Moscato Chenin

R69.00

Angels Tears got its unusual name from a legend that began in a small town, Freinet, in France in the 18thcentury, when the grape harvest produced an outstanding vintage that was especially fragrant and ambrosial. Word spread afar, and legend has it angels stole into the village cellars by night and, upon touching the wine to their lips, wept tears of joy. The very same legend continues to this day at Grande Provence, home of Angels Tears. Here a French Huguenot family planted the first vines imported from France in 1694. The first batch of Angels Tears wines was produced in 1992 from Muscat d’Alexandrie grapes.

VINIFICATION

This heavenly, natural sweet wine was made from a 28-year old Muscat d’ Alexandrie vineyard, one of the first grape varieties to be planted on Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate.

The grapes are hand harvested and brought into the cellar where they are gently destemmed and then pressed. Tank fermentation takes up to 2 weeks at a temperature of 13⁰C. At a specific point and taste our winemaker will stop the fermentation process to create this succulent, natural sweet wine.


STYLE  

This darling of the Angels Tears range is deliciously fruity with succulent stone fruit, litchi and citrus, enlivened by hints of floral and spicy Muscat notes.

 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Its easy drinking style make this wine perfect for any occasion. Enjoy it on a summer picnic, or pair it with lightly spiced Indian or Asian-style dishes. This delightful everyday crowd pleaser also goes down beautifully with a crisp, fresh salad.
