2015 Uvaggio Moscato 'secco'

100% Moscato giallo
100% Lodi appellation
100% Bella Vigna Vineyard

Harvest was on the last day of Sept, at the peak of maturity, after the fruit had achieved an exceptional level of flavor development.  This was about a month earlier than is typical, due to an early vintage, plus our aggressive thinning during the growing season.  The result is a full, expressive wine

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, then racked and filtered prior to bottling.

Bottled in April 2016; 13.1% alcohol, pH 3.57 & TA 5.6 g/l

Lush and round; exotic floral aromas like gardenia, jasmine and rose; a flavor of musk melon combined with hints of ginger, citrus and tropical fruits such as mango and papaya.
