2012 Uvaggio Moscato 'secco'
100% 2012 vintage
100% Lodi appellation
100% Bella Vigna Vineyard
We harvested our Moscato Giallo in mid Oct, after it reached our desired level of maturity and had achieved exceptional flavor development, yet still at a moderate brix, allowing us to craft an expressive and perfumed wine without excessive alcohol.
The juice was cool tank fermented with a fruit enhancing strain of yeast and without a malo-lactic conversion.
Post fermentation it was racked twice, followed by a light fining, a racking and filtration prior to bottling.
Bottled in December 2012; 12.9% alcohol, pH 3.49 & TA 5.1 g/l
Lush and round; exotic tropical and floral aromas (gardenia, jasmine and rose); a fresh melon flavor combined with ginger, citrus and subtle tropical fruit (meyer lemon and papaya).
