Muscat

14252 visitors
The muscat family of grapes of the species Vitis vinifera is widely grown for wine, raisins and table grapes. They range in color from white to almost black, but almost always have a pronounced sweet floral aroma. Muscat grapes are grown around the world in Bulgaria, Romania, Italy, Israel, France, Portugal, Greece, Spain, Australia, California, Hungary, Canada, Turkey and other places. The breadth and number of varieties of muscat suggest that it is very old, perhaps the oldest domesticated grape variety. There are theories that most families within the Vitis vinifera grape family are descended from the Muscat family.

2003 Muscat Canelli Late Harvest
Paso Robles

Back in my days at Estrella River Winery we made a Late Harvest Muscat Canelli and I was always fascinated by the rich thick juice that came out of the press to make this wine. It ...morewasn't until the 2000 vintage that we had the right grapes to produce one of our own. The 2003 vintage is even more intense! The grapes came from our Stone's Throw Vineyard and some of the rows were tagged before harvest for the extended ripening. The results produced a very aromatic wine with hints of apricots and pears. Fortification stopped the fermentation and retained the fruit's natural sweetness. Enjoy after dinner with fruit desserts.

2005 Orange Muscat
Amador County

There is a very small, but growing following for Orange Muscat. There are restaurateurs who are discovering the dynamics of Orange Muscat with Creme Brulee, Peche Melba, Flan or ev ...moreen vanilla ice cream. Have no fear, good consumer; you are years ahead of the pack. We have Orange Muscat for most of the year. The wine is dessert unto itself. The bouquet is absolutely spectacular with orange blossoms. The flavors are golden raisins, peaches and oranges. While there is enough tartness to stand up to fruit driven desserts, the lack of water produces a thick, viscous wine.

This wine has 17% residual sugar!

2006 Muscat Canelli "La Ocasion"
California

The Blend: 100% Muscat Canelli

A floral, fruit filled nose, rich flavors of melon and tropical stone fruits and a zesty finish make this wine a pleaser.
