Muscat


Poquito Moscato Poquito Moscato $9.50

Lightly sparkling, fruity and sassy, Poquito is small in size but big on taste. Delicate floral aromas combine with a sweet yet refreshing palate of ripe peaches, pears and apricots. Apply liberally at any social occasion. Great right out of the bottle but really amazing with mint and rum as a mojito!



Daisy Pinot Grigio Daisy Pinot Grigio $15.00

Almost Alsatian in style, Daisy is playful and dead serious. Soft citrus, and floral aromas with laser sharp acidity bringing stone fruits, lemon curd, river rock and a clean but lingering finish nuance. Body from the barrel fermentation with indigenous yeasts, further complexity from 5 months in almost neutral French oak.



KuentzBas Alsace Blanc KuentzBas Alsace Blanc $16.00

From a small 5 acre plot at one of the highest vineyards in Alsace comes this magical blend of lesser knows. There's almost too much happening on the nose with rich floral and mineral tones. Not sweet, not dry, it's got the pedigree of a grand cru in an approachable style and price. It's not like anything else and probably why Julie Andrews was really singing and spinning in these mountain fields.



Cleebourg Muscat Cleebourg Muscat $17.00

In our never-ending quest to expand yours and our own palates, we discovered this delicious Muscat done dry. Yes this is the same Moscato from Asti done in a still Alsatian style. Gorgeous floral depth and dimension on the nose, medium bodied with lychee and ripe honey crisp apple flavors. Bright with a clean finish, the absolute best wine with spicy Thai or Chinese food.



Monticara Monticara $47.00

I know what you're thinking...stop right there! A $47 bottle of Moscato??! Ummmm...YES! Grown in southern Spain in an area more known for their sweet fortified styles, this is an absolute gorgeous wine! Moscato done in a dry style from high altitude vineyards. Floral, pear, and melon notes with a hint of spicy ginger. Aged on the lees to make a beautiful texture! A must try!



Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Tintero Moscato

    #1 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible.
