The Muscat grape has a unique flavour that once tried is never forgotten. It is probably the only grape that produces wine with the same aroma as the grape itself. Sweet Muscats have the flavours of raisins and oranges.
James Halliday - "Full-bodied in every respect: black fruits, new oak, dark chocolate, licorice, plum, blackberry, cedar and ripe tannins. Savoury nuances appear briefly, then swallowed up in the swarm of rich flavours."
James Halliday - "Full-bodied, entirely in the black fruit and licorice spectrum, forbidding but compelling. Strong tannins are made to measure."
James Halliday - "Very different from the Black Blood I, more open and fragrant, the medium to full-bodied palate with a mix of red and black fruits, supple and rich, with perfectly weighted tannins."
James Halliday - "From the deep sands of Blewitt Springs. The bouquet signals the bright, lively medium-bodied palate with its mix of red and black cherry, plum and spice fruit. The tannins are superfine, adding length and class."
'Terroir' is a word that encapsulates the taste of a wine due to its unique environment - altitude, climate, rainfall, temperature and soil. The Black Blood trio are each from a different Hugh Hamilton vineyard with a distinct terroir.
