Showcases an absolutely gorgeous nose of orange blossom, honey, cantaloupe, and mandarin orange. A lush, round entry on the palate explodes with stone fruit and citrus energy, leading to a zesty yet umami-driven finish of mandarin orange, nectarine, peach, and just a kiss of honeyed sweetness. Serve chilled about 15 minutes out of the fridge for a marvelous warm weather treat.
Cam Confidential

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.
