WINEMAKING

The key to making a great Moscato is to capture the natural fruity aromas

and vibrant flavors of the varietal. The grapes were harvested between 24

and 25 brix and were fermented between 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit over

a period of 20 days in state-of-the-art concrete tanks. Unlike many

Moscatos, SIP has no added residual sugar, but instead gains a touch of

natural sweetness through arrested fermentation. We halt the fermentation

by lowering the temperature once the target residual sugar is achieved.

This also allows us to preserve the fruit flavors that are characteristic of this

variety. The result is a delightfully refreshing, clean and crisp wine.

TASTING NOTES

Our 2020 Moscato is arguably one of our best to date! With just enough

sweetness and refined bubbles, it’s sure to please. The palate doesn’t

stray far from it aromatic impression, bringing more apricot and peach flavor

along with a sweet citrus that lingers on the finish. With remarkable

balance and bright acidity this wine is perfect with spicy Thai cuisine, sweet

cheese dishes, tangy BBQ, sushi, fruity desserts, and warm summer days.
