You never need an excuse to open a bottle of wine. Here at the Turkish we certainly don't. Our aim is to introduce the best wines of Turkey to the Australian wine lovers, and this bottle of Muscat grapes, harvested very late in the season, hence the name, harvest will not disappoint. This is a much loved wine from the Sevilen family and we have fallen in love with it.
This is by far our sweetest wine, it makes your mouth water with intent as you look at the bottle. This wine is a keeper for a special occasion, but don't be afraid to drink it today.
SEVILEN LATE HARVEST
VARIETY: Sweet white wine 100% Misket/ Muscat.
ALC: 14% (high)
This sweet wine from the Aegean regions of Turkey has a beautiful golden colour. It has a very good intensity of ripe white fruit. You get the tingle of sweet spice, cinnamon, dried apricot characters shining through with some mineral aromas noted to indulge the senses.
This is by far our sweetest wine, it makes your mouth water with intent as you look at the bottle. Full bodied wine with natural levels of acidity which I'd say would be in medium ranges. With low tannins the is a very sweet wine that shows its self with every mouthful and its silky texture. Long after taste, very pleasant finish. This wine is a keeper for a special occasion, but don't be afraid to drink it today.
