2015 Muscat Canelli
100% Muscat Canelli. Only 150 cases produced.
The Kautz Family grows these Muscat Canelli grapes in Calaveras County right in their Ironstone Estate vineyards. The vineyards are located 2400 ft. above sea level where warm days are cooled by the evening mountain air. This area’s unique solid of decomposed granite mixed with volcanic sediment and red clay produce a wonderful mineral component.
Our Limited Release Muscat Canelli is made in a traditional style, portraying the incredible floral characters of orange blossoms, gardenia, jasmine, rose petals, spring wildflowers and a touch of lychee nut in the nose. Fresh apricots, tangerines, and peaches dominate the luscious texture on the palate. This dessert-style wine has a rich and long finish that is clean and refreshing.
Food Pairing Notes
This Muscat Canelli is fantastic with blackened chicken or shrimp served with a “no mayo” slaw. Also, Indian curry dishes and Jerk chicken are excellent pairings.
