    Rose Muscat 1952
    South Coast, Massandra
    Bottle (6)
    Apparently, Rose Muscat requires a minimum of 60 years before it begins showing secondary characteristics - but damn they're pretty when they emerge. It is a super layered and refined nose of sweet red fruit, mint, tea that are the core of the palate as well. Again the spirit plays a prominent role in the balance, but that balance is impeccable, keeping the moderate body quite fresh even during extended aeration. It seems bizarre to talk about a 60 year wine as having great raw materials, but that's what I find in the glass. Drink this now if you like but I suspect patience will be rewarded with lots more complexity - especially in the long, pretty finish. (94pts FCM)
