Oaky, butterscotch scents pour forth from this orange-colored wine. Flavors center around nutty, orangey nuances, with the wood notes reasserting themselves on the finish. The 18% alcohol is barely noticeable in this intense and unique dessert wine that bears a resemblance to some sherries and tawnies.

Sweet orange-peel and caramel, this fortified wine is nutty and a little fiery, with brandy undertones; a perfect match with crème brulee.

This brandy-fortified Muscat delivers sweet orange-zest, caramel and nutty flavors, with a solid background of brandy scents; match this dessert wine with the caramelized sugar crust of crème brulée.
