About this wine

The Fairview La Beryl Blanc is a traditional straw-dried sweet wine named after Charles Back’s mother and produced using Chenin Blanc and Muscat grapes.  A bold, assertive dessert wine with aromas of ripe apricots, honeysuckle perfume and citrus flavours on the nose. Savour a full mouth feeling with sweet tropical fruit and citrus flavours, followed by an unctuous texture courtesy of the racy, well-balanced acidity.

Alcohol: 12.21% ABV

    string(1666) "Considered the finest of the Muscat family, Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains is found everywhere, from the sweet, sparkling wines of Moscato d'Asti to the heady, fortified Vin Doux Naturels of Muscat Beaumes-de-Venise.

Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains (Moscato Bianco in Italy) is the oldest member of the Muscat family, which places it in good standing as one of the oldest grape varieties in the world. The variety is named for its small berries and seeds (petits grains), as is its red-skinned mutation Muscat à Petit Grains Rouges.

Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains is grown widely both in Europe and the New World, giving it a long list of regional synonyms. It may be produced in a number of wine styles and sweetness levels, each with its own regional tradition. Dry varietal wines show a range of citrus, floral and spice aromas, with a full, dry palate. Sparkling and slightly sparkling examples are typically sweeter and tend towards melon flavours, with sweet, grapey smells. Dessert wines are typically produced as vins doux naturels.

In Australia, the variety goes by various names, including Brown Muscat, Frontignan and Rutherglen Muscat. The latter is named for the Rutherglen wine region in the north-eastern corner of Victoria. Rutherglen has long been established as a Muscat specialist region, and is home to some of the world's finest sweet fortified Muscats, luscious and deep amber in colour.

In the vineyard, the variety requires a long growing season as its buds early and ripens relatively late, especially in cooler climates. It is susceptible to mildew diseases, requiring attentive canopy management practices from vignerons."
