Muscat  100%


 

Always the last pick of the year, Adelaida’s dessert wine is based on a small block of aromatic Muscat au petite grains or Muscat Blanc. The frozen grapes are pressed off, producing only a few drops of sweet nectar-like juice per grape, minus the still frozen water fraction. Sweet wines ferment slowly (over several months) and require a specialized yeast strain that can metabolize the elevated sugars. Small crops from this acre site necessitated a blend of two vintages.  Serve well chilled in a normal wine glass to show the full aromatic intensity.

Vineyard Notes

Vineyard Notes
Planted in 2001, Bobcat Vineyard produces both of Adelaida’s dessert wines. Bobcat Crossing is planted with three Portuguese grapes—Touriga Nacional, Tinto Cão, and Souzão—to produce a Port-Style wine (Don’s favorite). The soil bears sandy and loamy characteristics. The vineyard sustains hotter temperatures than the other sites, averaging between the mid-90s during the day to the low 50s at night.
