The Muscat Canelli grapes for this wine were harvested at night and in the cool early morning hours of
September to maintain the delicate fruit flavors. Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were crushed and
pressed into chilled tanks for settling. The clean juice was racked and fermentation was initiated in
temperature-controlled storage. A long, cool fermentation allowed for excellent flavor retention. After
final blending, the wine was stabilized and prepared for bottling.
The 2006 Muscato is like a breath of summer in a glass. There is a wonderful aroma of white peach,
apricot pear and slight floral finish. The wine is light and delicate yet full of intense flavors of sweet ripe
pear and apricots. This is a perfect aperitif for an afternoon gathering.
