Tasting Notes: To truly appreciate the gentle and delicate nose of this Muscat Ottonel from new Summerland producer SummerGate, I recommend 30 mins of decanting to allow the wine to open-up (and warm-up), releasing the intricate aromas of apricots, rose petals, stonefruit, cotton candy and lemon. The dry palate follows with the perception of sweetness from the concentrated flavours of a medley of citrus fruits which manages the tart acid effortlessly. Balance and a long, lingering finish seem to be a trademark of the SummerGate portfolio and is well represented here. Drink 2011-2014.
