Luscious and balanced, this is a medium-bodied, off-dry sherry with notes of dried apricot and raisins, honeysuckle, and toasted almonds. The long finish makes this a perfect sipper for after the desert, but you can pair this well with pound cake, vanilla ice cream, and oatmeal cookies.
Geek Notes: Muscat of Alexandria is an ancient grape variety used both for table grapes and wine production. Despite its long history, the variety remains rather undistinguished and lies in the shadow of its finer, more aromatic cousin Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains. Nevertheless, there are a handful of wine regions that make high-quality wines from Muscat of Alexandria, most often sweet or fortified styles.
