Wine Maker Notes
Muscat, which is thought to be named for the French word “musque” meaning perfumed, has a distinctive and lovely set of aromas and flavors. To capture these, we fermented in the grapes in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures. Throughout the process, Winemaker Jason Dodge tasted the wine, which evolved daily as active yeasts turned the sweet juice into dry wine. At the height of aromatic intensity, Dodge arrested fermentation, preserving some natural sweetness and locking in the yeast volatiles. The resulting wine shows depth of flavors with a lovely musque.
