Dry Muscat 2017

Dry Muscat 2017Category Icon

Our inaugural Dry Muscat is a single vineyard expression from the Bartolucci family; experts in organic viticulture and longtime friends of Bonterra. Aromas of orange blossom, tangerine, honeysuckle and a hint of apricot give way to a vibrant and intricate palate offering flavors of grapefruit, preserved lemons, and nectarine, with an intriguing warm spice.

Muscat grapes were harvested in early September 2017 and slowly cold-fermented in stainless steel tanks to make the most of their natural flavors.The result is a wine that is delightfully fresh, clean and dry.This wine is gorgeous as an aperitif but also terrific with Asian cuisine with a hint of spice, fresh salads, light fish or pasta with seafood.

Combined with vivid fruits, there is sweetness illusion, but that dissipates in the mid-palate and finish, where the acidity and tart fruits announce their presence.

This is an aromatic, bone-dry wine that shows off the grape’s floral side. It smells of jasmine, rose and lychee, tastes crisp and refreshing and finishes with an appetizing nip of astringency.
