Serving a Muscadel? Over ice?

joypirate | Aug 15, 2007 07:10 AM

When I was in South Africa last year I bought a bottle of red Muscadel based on the wine store's recommendation. He said that it is often served over ice with lime in the warm climate. This sounds intriguing and I think I'm going to crack it open tonight as it's 90 degrees out and I'm ordering outstanding Indian takeout with some friends though I am a smidge apprehensive.

Does anyone have any other experiences with this wine? Is this truly a good way to serve it? Any other recommendations?

I don't have the bottle in front of me but I can find out what kind it is specifically. It won several awards I believe.

Thanks in advance!
