Winemaker's Notes: This wine remained on lees with weekly bâtonnage for 8 months. It was then racked and filtered. Bâtonnage is the French term for stirring settled lees back into wine. Lees are the sediment of winemaking, usually made up of dead yeast and bits of grape seeds and solids. Notes of lemon verbena, madarini oranges, and jasmine lead to a palate of honeysuckle, white peach and key lime pie. The winemakers' aimed to enhance fruit and varietal characters while building mouthfeel in a grape that sometimes lacks texture. Valvin Muscat is often made as a sweet wine, it was the winemakers' goal to create a dry, yet lucious version of this native grape.
