Muse Extra Brut Sparkling 2013



Drawn from well-ripened fruit from our traditionally low-yield plantings in the north, this apertif-style spent four years on lees, and it’s all about light, soft fruit and balanced sweetness to start, before it rounds gently into a mixed orchard sprinkled with baked goods—a harvest pie with toasted almonds and custard. Finishes, long, dry, and bright.

Built for long-term cellaring, expect it to get softer, rounder (plus more toast and honey character) the longer it’s down.

Vintage Description
Technical Details

An aperitif style with 4 years on lees. This is quite a structural wine in that the dosage
has been kept to a minimum to highlight both freshness of aroma and acidity, ensure a balance with chalky astringency and provide mid-palate creaminess. In youth, you’ll find the wine surprisingly fresh with alluring subtlety and complexity. However, this wine has been produced with the aim of long term cellaring and will mature for a very long time, gradually gain more toast and honey flavours with a softening on the mid-palate giving more roundness and generosity.
