Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
When approaching making Moscato, our goal is to create a wine that is both full of flavor and perceptible sweetness, yet still light on the palate. This wine achieves all the aspects that make a wine approachable, yet sophisticated. The 2018 Terra d’Oro Moscato displays a stunning golden hue in the glass. This wine is vibrant with aromas of honey, white peach, honeysuckle, pineapple and lemon zest on the nose. Vibrant flavors of Meyer lemon, pineapple, anise and generous viscosity are showcased 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 2018 Moscato with fresh fruit or Asian food.
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 2018 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 perfumed fruit.
Production 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 into the blend, creating a bright, clean and perfectly balanced wine.
