Food Pairings for Bonny Doon Vineyard Muscat Monterey County Ca' del Solo
Our Muscat is not like any other for it is a moscato giallo or gold muscat clone. Traditionally found in the Alto-Adige region of Northeast Italy, this rare variation on the Muscat theme is more floral and less weighty than the typical white Muscat. Charmingly perfumed and delicate, giallo is a wine to savor with a fine cheese or light poultry or perhaps a delicately spiced dish of marrow beans and braised leeks. Tasting Notes Pale yellow color with light gold highlights. Bright floral notes of honeysuckle, lilac and orange blossom bring to mind a perfumed spring garden at dusk. Ripe peach, melon and yellow apple combine with citrus zest and spearmint on the palate. The 2008 Muscat is extraordinarily fine with grilled sea bass with lime and mint butter, assorted Dim Sum or fried chicken with pan gravy. Vineyard | Production Notes Ca’ del Solo is the frontier outpost, Biodynamic® estate vineyard of Bonny Doon Vineyard, dedicated to producing wines with a particular emphasis on the expression of terroir, or unique sense of place. Our winemaking is generally hands-off, respectful of the originality of the vineyard site. Our 2008 vintage expresses the beautiful crystalline mineral aspect of the Monterey County soils: musky, melodious, melon with powerful aromatics, clean acidity and a slightly off-dry finish. Absolutely brilliant as an apéritif and a superb complement to charcuterie and Asian cuisines.
