Grape variety :
Italia, Muscat of Hamburg
Comparable to no other, the coppery, slightly amber color of this surprising wine of Tahiti is a preamble to sensuous pleasure. The Italia grapes from which this wine is made are picked after ripeness, allowing the accumulation of the aromas of this great dessert wine, with a nose of honey, tangerine and bitter orange. It is rich in mouth, unctuous and long, with tangerine accents in retro-olfaction ; the final touch is supple and delicate.

May keep for several years, but can also be enjoyed young.
A light deposit in the bottle is natural, and it is a sign of quality. "Franc de pied" vine (non grafted vine stock).
