2016 Black Muscat Reserve
Blue Grouse is the only known producer of Black Muscat in Canada. It is a variety with more than 30 synonyms, the most common being Muscat Hamburg. A vitis vinifera cross of the Schiava Grossa and Muscat of Alexandria grapes, the wine is purple in colour with aromas of wild blueberries, lychee fruit, lavender and subtle hints of baking spice that absolutely jump out of the glass at you. On the palate, this wine showcases flavours of rosemary blossoms, stewed plums with soft tannins and a nicely balanced medium acidity.
