2017
Alexander Valley

Muscat
Description

From the warm reaches of the Alexander Valley, the grapes for our Muscat Canelli were whole- cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel to preserve its freshness.

Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

Light in color.

Aroma: 

The 2017 Alexander Valley Muscat Canelli opens with orange blossom aromas and a kiss of white magnolia.

Palate: 

This is a refreshing wine with sweet peach and lychee flavors that come together with a touch of minerality. The finish is clean and is accented by notes of ginger.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The 2017 vintage was marked by extreme conditions that reduced crop size, starting with abundant winter rainfall and mild spring weather, which led to vigorous vines. The growing season saw three heat spikes, including one over Labor Day weekend that kicked harvest into high gear.
