Harvested at approximately 32 Brix from our own Destiny Ridge Vineyard, our 2012 Muscat was gently whole cluster pressed. The juice was then carefully transferred to a stainless steel tank, where it underwent a long, cold fermentation until it reached the desired Brix level, at which time fermentation was stopped.  Very aromatic and floral, our 2nd vintage of Muscat presents itself with inviting aromas of mango, pineapple, apricot, and notes of honey.  It’s sweet and tropical flavors are balanced by its bright acidity, creating a light, refreshing and elegant white wine.  The Muscat’s crisp style also makes this ideal for Asian dishes, or a delicious accompaniment to grilled peaches drizzled with honey and topped with cream cheese.
