The Estate Sauvignon Musqué allows for a multitude of aroma profiles in our Sauvignon Blanc. Technically, Sauvignon Musqué is a clonal selection of Sauvignon Blanc. In the vineyard, when picked at lower sugar levels, the resulting wines maintain their crisp, grapefruit character. However when allowed to develop the true Muscat flavors in the field, the finished wine shows beautiful honeysuckle and tropical floral notes. Most of the vines are grown at Markham's two Estate vineyards, both located in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. The winery's Estate Semillon grapes are harvested to provide a juicy texture and honeydew melon character to their decidedly California-style Sauvignon Blanc. Food friendly, this wine was built in the vineyard and cold-fermented slowly. Careful blending was used to highlight the abundant tropical aromas that make this wine shine.
