Lot 648 comes to us from a family-owned winery in Lake County that specializes in small-lot, top-quality wines made from certified organic vineyards (and boasts a massive laundry list of 90+ scores and double gold medals from the past decade to boot). Made from old vines planted in the late 70s and raised in stainless steel.
Varietal note: also known as Muscat Blanc, Muscat Canelli is one of the oldest cultivated grape varieties in the world, with origins dating back to the ancient Greeks. In modern times, the Muscat Blanc varietal has found its sweet spot in California's better growing regions, with the hallmark characteristic being floral, wonderfully perfumed wines with wonderfully nervy stone fruit notes that range from off-dry to sweet/dessert styles.
Excellent semi-sweet white
Muscat Canelli was not a varietal I was familiar with but wow, an excellent semi-sweet white. I prefer dry wines while my wife likes sweet. This was a great in between wine that we both really enjoyed, not dry but also not too sweet. I will be ordering more.
Good dessert wine
Sweet wine ....refreshing and fruity
Good summer white
Good summer white. Enjoyed it chilled with Tacos.
I love the Moscato d'Asti so I figured I would like this one too. And I do! The peach and citrus flavors really pop, it's sweet but not too sweet. I chilled it for about 30 minutes and drank a glass after dinner. So light & refreshing! It was 84 degrees today, and it was perfect for relaxing on the deck watching the sunset. Thank you for another great white wine, I'm definitely ordering more!
A nice, white wine.
Nice sweet wine
Mixed case of this wine and 622 which is excellent also...not too sweet. Tremendous value.
Strong Honey/Citrus flavors, on the Sweeter Side
A bit sweeter than expected, but the honey and citrus elements are nice.
Mix up your white routine
Usually drink dry whites, but wanted to try something new so we gave this a shot. Drank true to description above... enjoyed the peach, mandarin, and honeysuckle. If you liked the moscato d’asti, you’ll be sure to enjoy this too.
Outstanding semi-sweet wine that will go well when it gets warm
This is a very nice semi-sweet wine that is drinkable now and will go very well in the warmer weather that is coming. Great price point and should be accepted by people who like very drinkable wine and not wine snobs.
This was is perfect and is very refreshing. This is my first order from Cameron Hughes and it meets all the expectations.
