2018 Orange Muscat
Sourced from a local Shenandoah Valley vineyard, our Orange Muscat is pale amber in color and has a lovely floral nose with hints of ripe apricot. This luscious wine journeys across the palate with ripe pear at the front, sweet lime transitioning to ripe tangerine and mandarin oranges mid palate and coming full circle to ripe, juicy Bartlett pear in a long, lingering finish. Its acid perfectly balances the fruit's natural sugar.
Vineyard & Vintage Notes
The 2018 harvest was a one of kind for the Orange Muscat fruit. The now well-known bountiful harvest of 2018 resulted in a roughly 30% increase in yields, with no impact on final balance and acidity. The Ren Ranch is a neighboring vineyard, right down the street from our Estate Property. The Ren Ranch blocks used for the Bella Grace 2018 Orange Muscat were Block 6 & 10.
