Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine is vibrant with intricate mineral details. Honeysuckle and fresh citrus notes lure the nose, followed by flavors of lush apricot, ripe peaches and hints of lemon curd on the palate. More than a dessert wine, this Moscato is exceptionally versatile, balancing sugar with acidity and delivering a long, smooth finish. For a delicious meal, serve the Terra d’Oro Moscato with spicy phaal curry, or sip it alongside a dessert of blueberry and blackberry panna cotta
Vineyard Notes
Moscato, also called Muscat, is grown in nearly every wine producing region in the world, resulting in an array of styles for this ubiquitous wine. It is believed the name may have been derived from the French word musque, meaning “to be perfumed”— a fitting moniker for an intensely aromatic variety. California’s sun-soaked hillsides and cool Mediterranean summer nights impart a deep concentration of aromas and flavors to the Moscato grown here. The Terra d’Oro 2015 Moscato grapes were hand-picked from the Artois Vineyard in the Northern Sacramento Valley. The vineyard’s combination of well-drained, sandy soil and steep hillside plantings stresses the vines just enough to ensure a light crop of ripe, intensely perfurmed fruit.
Winemaker Notes
The Terra d’Oro Moscato is crafted in a dramatically different manner than other varietals produced at the winery. All of the Moscato grapes are destemmed and crushed into stainless steel tanks and left overnight before pressing. This “cap and drain” method keeps the grapes in contact with their skins for an extended period, delivering increased varietal intensity. After gentle pressing, 70% of the juice is inoculated with yeast. The remaining sweet, unfermented juice is kept at very low temperatures, then added back to the blend, creating a bright, clean and perfectly balanced wine.
