Hillside Winery & Bistro 2016 Muscat Ottonel

Muscat Ottonel was the first variety planted at the Hillside farm (1984), and has been a favorite here for some 30 years. Moderate summer temperatures and a long season produced grapes of true varietal expression. This wine has lovely floral aromas and hints of spice. WINEMAKING: An early, warm spring led into a cool summer in 2017, perfect conditions for aromatic white varieties such as the Muscat family. The grapes were hand harvested in mid- September over three days at 21.2° and 21.8° Brix. Handled gently to preserve its delicate aromatics, the fruit was de- stemmed and given overnight skin contact before draining/pressing off skins and cold settling. The juice was allowed a long slow fermentation in stainless steel. Fermentation ended with a small amount of residual sugar remaining, for an off-dry finish.
