Thelema “Vin de Hel” Muscat Late Harvest (375ml) 2021
A golden dessert wine with very typical Muscat characters on the nose. The wine shows upfront aromas of pineapple, citrus, apricots, a touch of honey and subtle floral notes. The palate is lush with the perfect balance between sweetness and fresh acidity.
Enjoy with dessert or some fine handcrafted cheeses.
