Rodica Rumeni Muskat

My final wine from the Slovenia trip. This is a sweet white wine made from yellow muscat (muscat blanc) grapes. The grapes were harvested late so they were over ripe with lot’s of sugar to produce a sweet wine. The winery also advertises itself as organic.

It has a pale gold colour with a pronounced scent ofvtropical fruits lychee and pineapple. It smells syrupy.

A sweet wine, medium body, good finish but relatively light for a sweet wine.

On tasting you get a mouth full of tropical fruit but it’s not sickly as it’s nicely balanced with some acidity

I’m not ususlly a fan of sweet wines but I liked this one.
