Winemaker Notes

0.43 tons were harvested from the Muscat row on 9/22/15 and placed in the refrigerated trailer to chill.  They were crushed on 9/24/15, and left to cold soak until pressing on 9/27/15. At pressing the harvest chemistry was 18.8 Brix, 4.1 g/L titratable acidity, and a pH of 3.57.

The settled juice was racked to a fermentation tank 2 days later, warmed, and inoculated with Rhône 4600 yeast.  The fermentation continued for 10 days at approximately 63F, spiking at 68F, and was stopped by cooling at 0.8% residual sugar.  The wine was racked off the gross lees 70 days after fermentation.

The wine was sterile filtered at bottling on 08/16/16, with final chemistry of 11.2% alcohol, a pH of 3.10, TA of 7.2 g/L, and 0.4% residual sugar.

20.6 cases produced.

Food Pairing

Traditionally challenging vegetables, such as asparagus and artichokes, have the opportunity to shine when paired with Muscat Ottonel. Try a shaved asparagus salad with arugula and Parmesan alongside seared scallops for a main dish, with a delightful crêpes Suzette for dessert.
