Praxis Chardonnay Musqué 2017

Drinking Guide

 

Drink now

$28

QTY

With flavours of musk sticks, apples, peaches, lemon sherbet and vanilla bean, this isn’t your average wine. The bouquet is delicate and pure, the flavours are fruit-led, and the lightness is balanced by a hint of richness. Acid and a touch of sweetness weave around one another from start to finish.

Vintage Description
Technical Details

This clone of Chardonnay (Entav 809), originally from Burgundy is a natural mutation which shows defined and pronounced muscat aroma. When the Ontario wine industry first started the clone was sent to them as no distinction was made when they asked for Chardonnay. Now, the clone is very rare in France but quite popular in Ontario. When I developed the Muse and Praxis series I thought that the planting of Chardonnay Musqué in Tasmania for the Praxis wines would be an excellent way to show off this unique offshoot of a very well-known variety. All stainless steel and cool fermented you'll see a vibrancy in muscaty aromatics with a flavour profile of a typical Chardonnay. It is best enjoyed in its youth to retain as much of the muscat character as possible.
