Winemaker’s Notes               The goal of the winemaker was to make a serious style of Muscat Blanc that would be similar to the beautiful Alsace wines that would pair with spicy ethnic foods. It has a bit of residual sugar but it is integrated almost undetectably with the acidity of the wine making it a definite food wine. The aromatics of this wine are unmistakable and put you to mind of sitting in a field of flowers in the spring! The floral notes of the wine are integrated with notes of citrus, melon, and honeysuckle. The palate is equally impressive. There is a beautiful balance of acidity with a touch of sweetness that fills the palate and finishes clean. The finish lingers for a while and is the perfect match for the spice of Thai or Indian cuisine.
