From a small vineyard in east Lodi, just kissing up to the Clements Hills we discovered this block of Orange Muscat. For a long time this varietal has been on our winemaking list due to its complex and amazing aromatics.
With a focus on keeping the grapes as cold as possible we started picking before the sun rise, finishing just after 8am and rushed the grapes to the winery. To minimize extraction of harsh tannins we whole cluster pressed the grapes to tank and immediately chilled to settle the solids so that we could start the fermentation with clean juice. After a gentle racking we inoculated with a specific strain of yeast that tolerates very cold fermentation temperatures and allowed fermentation to proceed for over a month.
The resulting wine is absolutely stunning. Beautifully complex aromas of Orange blossom and citrus rind on the nose leading to a snappy, crispy wine with just the right amount of sweetness that just evaporates from your palate leaving it fresh and clean, waiting for another sip.
A balanced mouth feel and low alcohol (10.2%) are sure to make this wine a summer sipping favorite.
