Aleatico is a Corsican
black Muscat variety, once the favorite wine of Napoleon Bonaparte. We’ve put a
new twist on it by making it a dry aromatic white wine. Honey in color with a
full range of aromatics including nutmeg, crisp green apple and honeysuckle.
Pleasantly dry and crisp, it is approachable and must be tasted to be believed.
Vineyards: Water Trough. Selection: Hopland Field Selection
Blend: 100% Aleatico. Production: 122 cases
The Aleatico is whole cluster pressed. Fermentation is cool and slow to lift the aromatics, typical of Muscat varietals. The wine was aged in small stainless-steel barrels for 5 months and then bottled in late February 2020.
