Greenish gold. Poached pear, peach liqueur, honey and ginger on the intensely perfumed nose. Lush, gently sweet pit fruit and melon flavors are complemented by succulent herbs and orange pith, which add good back-end cut. Suavely melds sweetness and vivacity, finishing with excellent clarity and a clinging note of candied orange zest. Seventeen pounds of grapes were reportedly necessary to make 375 milliliters of this wine.

The 2013 Victoria #2 is an elegant white offering up notes of peaches, pineapples, mangoes and other assorted tropical fruits. Medium-bodied, fresh and lively, in spite of its remarkable residual sugar level, this is an exotic, classic example of 100% Moscatel de Alexandria. Enjoy it over the next several years.
