2015 Orange Muscat
The 2015 Orange Muscat is a wine with a beautiful bouquet filled with scents of white rose petal, orange blossom and honeysuckle flower accented by hints of Asian pear. On the palate, the foremost fruit flavors are fresh orange, ripe white peach, sweet apricot and rich honey followed by a bright finish of kaffir lime. This wine has a beautiful, lively bright acidity with a graceful mouth feel and creamy rich texture that is extremely well balanced. This wine pairs epically with food!
The 2015 vintage was excellent overall. It was the earliest and most compact harvest on record for us here at Renwood. Due to ongoing drought conditions, yields were down a bit compared to the previous vintage but fruit balance and physiological ripeness was optimal across all varieties. Smaller berries and resulting clusters have produced wines of significant intensity, color and grace. To say we are excited about the wines from 2015 would be an understatement!
