Muse Extra Brut 2011

Drinking Guide

 

Drink 2016-2036

Hand-picked, vinified and bottled at Moorilla, it showcases subtlety, complexity and finesse. A partial wild ferment, a higher percentage of Pinot noir and a Ganau cork bring generosity, weight and softness to balance a vintage of brilliant acidity. Its bouquet offers brioche, honey, vanilla bean, minerals and apple blossom. The trinity of Chardonnay, Pinot noir and developed yeast character deliver long flavours, a creamy mousse, chalky tannins and vibrant Tasmanian acidity. This dry aperitif suits shellfish, caviar and cellaring. Disgorging liqueur was made up from 2004 brut that has been kept on lees.

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 but ensuring a balance with chalky astringency and providing 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 in which it will gradually develop toast and honey flavours with a softening on the mid-palate giving more roundness and generosity.

"Disgorged late 2015; 4 years 7 months on lees. For its very pale straw hue, this is a cuvée of generosity and savoury complexity, with all the personality of wild yeast and some nutty notes from natural cork" The Wine Companion 2018, August 1 2017, by Tyson Stelzer
