Dry Muscat 2018

Bonterra Bottle Shot of Dry Muscat

Dry Muscat 2018This product is from the Biodynamically Farmed Collection

Cradled between the shore of the upper Russian River and a blue heron nesting site, Blue Heron Ranch epitomizes the biodynamic ethos, combining nature preserves, free-roaming wildlife and holistic farming practices. The vineyard’s location along a fertile riverbank on the floor of the Sanel Valley couples a temperate climate with ancient gravelly loam soils, yielding fragrant Muscat Canelli fruit.

Following harvest, our biodynamically farmed Muscat grapes were gently pressed before a slow, cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks. To preserve the fresh, aromatic character of the fruit, the wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation, nor did it come in contact with oak. The result is a dry Muscat with bright acidity.

A single-vineyard expression of our biodynamically farmed estate vineyard, this lean and lively wine delivers notes of juicy mango, stone fruit and fragrant lychee. A subtle thread of honeysuckle blossom segues to a crisp, dry finish. 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.

Joseph Brinkley at Bonterra farms these muscat vines under biodynamics, delivering fruit that can stand naked, in a completely dry style. And it’s delicious to taste a dry muscat with this much lemony bitterness and citrusy freshness. It feels honest, a lovely summer refreshment.

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.
