Amber Forever

The Story of Amber Forever

George Paul Canitz – one-time owner of Muratie, renowned painter and worshipper of wine, women and song – would have insisted (almost too emphatically) that his sweet wine was named after a character in a 1940s novel – a high class girl who “kept happy” British upper classmen.

He would also have denied (almost too profusely) that his wine was named after his model and muse (also called Amber and whose picture, to this day, hangs in the Muratie cellar). That’s simply because, rumour has it, she kept him happy.

With upfront dried fruit notes and a hint of raisin in the back, this complex but soft, sweet but non-sticky fortified Muscat is for Amber. Both of them.
