2017 Muscat Canelli
100% High Plains fruit, all from Andy Timmons’ Lost Draw Vineyards. At 2.8% residual sugar it is our least sweet Muscat ever, and now our least sweet wine overall. The color is a radiant pale yellow, and the aromas are as intense as a field of Hill Country wildflowers in full bloom. Stylistically perfect with intense varietal character, Mandarin orange, lemon zest, apricot, and mango mingle with floral notes of wild honey, rosewater, and magnolia. The palate is rich and lush, with sugar, fruit, and acid all in perfect harmony. It’s spicy, sweet, and tart like a lemon-drop laced with honey and a spring bouquet. It features a full-bodied, round mouthfeel with a lingering, fruit dominated finish.
