Muscat Ottonel was the first variety planted at the Hillside farm (1984), and has been a favorite here for some 30 years. The Muscat family numbers over 200, and Ottonel is a particularly floral, refreshing member. This wine has lovely floral aromas and hints of spice.
Hand harvested early October at 21° 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.

This is the nicest wine I have tasted this year. It is so delicious.
