(9/2018) From the northern end of Corsica, Antoine Arena's Muscat du Cap Corse is a great example of a Vin Doux Naturel you will want to drink. A VDN wine is made when the grape fermentation is stopped before it has finished and then fortified with a neutral grape spirit, in this case with Corsian grappa as is their tradition on the island. Made from 100% Muscat a Petits Grains, an explosion of ripe apricots, almonds, orange marmalade, and honey are present here, but the wine does not come across as too sweet as its high acidity balances everything nicely. Make dessert a memorable one and pair it with fruit tarts or flan!
