Muscat of Alexandria
With Fresh zippy acidity, this an unusual but really enjoyable white wine. With similar aromatics to a sauvignon blanc, but a much fuller mouth feel and a wonderfully long and refreshing finish of grapefruit. Great on its own but exceptional with food.
Great with any of the fish dishes but in particular the crab special, and also the fennel dish of braised orange and fennel.
