The Sauvignon Musque being fermented in re-toasted oak delivers a very complex flavor profile. Clone 1 provides the traditional profile of citrus and lends to the high acidity. The Sauvignon Musque provides depth and shows in the range of pear, fig, and pineapple while adding a rich tropical profile. The sur lees treatment is very evident and felt on the palate as a creamy trait. This wine will make an ideal aperitif wine and a delicious companion to food including fresh or grilled fish and seafood, particularly oysters, crab, and lobster along with grilled or broiled chicken dishes and a wide range of cheeses. Our inspiration for this wine comes from the unique opportunity to marry old and new world winemaking practices resulting in a truly distinctive wine.
