Named after an historical surveyor’s geographic marker overlooking our vineyard, Glen Garvald wines represent our varietal and replanting response to climate change.
Although most commonly utilised as a high-impact aromatically intense small volume component of Bordeaux blends to complement the higher proportions of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, our commitment to explore the possibilities and potentials for future sustainability of all of our planted varieties gave us the impetus to vinify, mature and bottle Muscadelle as a stand-alone wine.
Subtle evolving varietal aromas of musk, ginger snap biscuit, dates, nashi pear and melaleuca flower team with underlying savoury elements of dusty oak, mace, sage butter and balsam. The soft, viscous and spreading palate pulls flavours along deep to the resonant finish with richness, roundness and suppleness all tethered by a building block of fine acidity and slow spreading tannin. A perfect accompaniment to often difficult to match Asian and spicy dishes, prosciutto-wrapped roast chicken and cooked-curd hard cheeses.
