Beautiful in color with pale yellow accented with hints of green, this is a rich and well balanced sweet wine. Aromas fill the glass with floral white blossom, mandarin orange, and fresh apricot. On the palate, flavors of ripe peach and honeysuckle meld together with citrus undertones and a tangerine zest to create an opulent and refreshing wine.
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, 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 flavor intensity of the variety.
