Wine on Tuesday

Well, vintage has well and truly started today. The pickers have been in the vineyard picking some of the best white grapes we have seen. Beautiful muscat grapes being picked to produce our luscious liqueur white muscat. These grapes will be lovingly crushed, pressed, fortified and then left in barrels for up to 12 years - they taste great today but will be perfect in 12 years or so.
Patience - that is what you need to be a great winemaker and Angelo Puglisi is certainly patient. Watching over his vineyards for 12 months and then waiting for the fruits of the vine to be ready for our customers tastebuds - it takes time but is worth it in the end.
