Estate Bottled

Produced and Bottled by Pamo Valley Winery
Our new release won a Silver in the March 31st judging at the inaugural San Diego County Fair Commercial Wine Competition!

With just over 200 acres in all of California, Orange Muscat is rarely seen here. It was once grown in France and there are some small plantings in Italy and Australia. Viognier (vee-ohn-YAY) is best known as the only permitted grape in the French wine region of Condrieu. Growing in popularity, it is the most planted white Rhone varietal in the United States.

Our small lot, handcrafted off-dry Orange Muscat/Viognier blend offers a flavor filled white wine with a satisfying creamy mouth feel. Harvested at night, whole cluster pressed and fermented at cool temperatures, this wine delivers delicious orange creamsicle, apricot, honey and floral peach aromas that will greet your senses.  On the palate are rich flavors of bright guava and honeydew melon following hints of tropical fruit with a luscious vanilla cream background.  Serve chilled. Pairs well with: This wine has a bit of sweetness and will pair well with summer salads tossed with goat cheese and dried cranberries or with desserts such as cheesecake or creme brulee.

This wine will be released and available for sale at the tasting room on Friday, April 6th, 2012.  Only 12 cases produced, this one will sell out fast!
