Artisan Family Winery

Boplaas White Mucadel

Another world class dessert wine. This is a little lighter in body than their Heritage White Muscadel, and a little fresher and crisper - or would you say not quite as viscous and luscious? You need to taste them back to back like I did to spot this difference though.

This wine is delicious and seriously good value for money - once again look past the presentation and concentrate on what is in the bottle. Beautiful flavours, great balance, serious length. And only £14.99 for a 75cl bottle!
