2019 Napa Valley Estate Moscato
After achieving the desired flavors on the vine, the Muscat Canelli was harvested in the cool morning hours in an effort to preserve the delicate flavors. The fruit was received in the cellar, where the grapes were pressed to tank and immediately chilled and settled prior to fermentation. All fermentation was completed in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to maintain and enhance the natural flavors. The final blend was completed soon thereafter to capture the lovely bright qualities and intensity of flavor of the variety.
This opulent wine is brilliantly colored with bright yellow and gold hues. Sweet aromas of white blossom and honey suckle mingle with mandarin orange and quince paste. Flavors of ripe honeydew melon and orange blossom are supported by notes of dried apricot and tangerine zest that linger. With a round texture and crisp acidity, this wine is a delight to drink on its own or with food.
