De Martino, Viejas Tinajas Muscat, Itata, Bío Bío, Chile 2013
Dry to the bone, this Muscat from very old vines on the slopes of Itata was fermented and aged in 100-year-old clay amphorae for nine months before bottling. It is fragrant, floral and rich in flavours and aromas of candied citrus. The body is stunning and voluptuous with a wild texture. Great now with charcuterie or to cellar for a decade.
