Winemaker Notes
An early, warm spring led into a cool summer in 2017, perfect conditions for aromatic white varieties such as the Muscat family. The grapes were hand harvested in mid-September over three days at 21.2° and 21.8° Brix. Handled gently to preserve its delicate aromatics, the fruit was de-stemmed and given overnight skin contact before draining/pressing off skins and cold settling. The juice was allowed a long slow fermentation in stainless steel. Fermentation ended with a small amount of residual sugar remaining, for an off-dry finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs beautifully with Thai food, picnics and fresh air
