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.
Sweet with a bit of tang
This is generally a sweet wine, but with a bit of tang. Honey and orange clearly evident at first, but the finish develops some grapefruit. The wine is light in texture, but with still with nice fullness. I found no need to pair this with food; I drank it by the glass, and later with some light snacks.
A delightful treat
Sweet, fruity, and refreshing. What more could you ask for in a moscato? Both my partner and I loved it!
Another great value for your buck wine from CH Wines
This Muscat Canelli is a wonderful wine on a Summer evening. It's fruity depth of flavor but yet slightly crisp taste works for any casual or formal gatherings. Another very good wine value from Cam.
The perfect sweet wine for summer evenings. Truly a joy.
Very sweet, would use as a dessert wine. Was expecting something drier from the other reviews, but I found it too sweet to really pair with any meals.
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.
