The Rolly Gassmann Moenchreben de Rorschwihr Muscat Vendanges Tardives is an uncommon, unique offering. It offers a bouquet and tasting notes similar to traditional Muscats, but enhances them further. Muscat is generally sweet, floral, and fruity - offering a cornucopia of characteristics for customers to enjoy.
This particular wine is no different. It is bold, fruity, and fragrant, offering a delicious sweetness that offsets the acidity of the wine. It is complex and full. To the eye: delicious golden yellows are evident more akin to a liquid of heaven than an actual wine. On the nose: floral tones are most forward with jasmine being at the fore. On the palate: the wine is rich, silky, and smooth. It is rather fruit heavy with notes of citrus, pear, and tropical fruits. Spices such as cardamon are also noted. It has a medium-finish that is both refreshing and rich.
This delicious wine pairs well with light chicken and fish courses, and can be served alongside mains of the same protein. It is bold and will hold its own against stronger, boisterous flavors.
Store your unopened bottle in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 15°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
