What are Small Lot Wines? They’re stylistic winemaker creations shaped by the growing season, fruit-style qualities, vineyard blocks or simply winemaker inspiration. They’re small production, one-of-a-kind, never to be repeated
This unique, off-dry style white wine offers an immense floral nose, steely-minerality with hints of rose, light pear and subtle honey. Balanced with a light acidity, this wine offers beautiful freshness and structure. Serve slightly chilled with seared scallops, most Thai or Indian cuisine, lighter cheeses or mushroom dishes.
Normally used for blending, this is our first single production of Muscat Ottonel. Handpicked in the cool early morning hours, the grapes were traditionally pressed and fermented slowly in stainless steel at cool temperatures. We inoculated with yeast to preserve bright fruit flavors and unique character. By extended aging in neutral stainless-steel environment, the flavors were accentuated along with the crisp, zesty qualities and distinctive freshness. The finished wine was aged for 8 months in stainless steel and stored cold to retain the wine’s aroma and fresh character.
