Matchbook Chardonnay Musque Clone No 809 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Crew Wines is owned and operated by the Gugiere family. After selling R.H. Philips, owners John and his wife Lane along with his brother Karl decided to focus on a new venture – one that was dedicated to showcasing specific terroirs. Founded in 2005, Crew Wines produces approachable, food-friendly wines. The owners named the company Crew in honor of the many staff members who left R.H. Phillips to help them start their new venture. Crew Wines produces wines meant to explore the terroir of Dunnigan Hills and the California coast. To that end, the team has spent a great deal of time identifying and nurturing just the varietals that adapt well in this environment. Occasionally, a small percentage of coastal fruit is included to intensify natural aromas and flavors. Matchbook Wines are a tongue in cheek homage to John and his brother's childhood when they used to get into trouble for lighting matches and setting off rockets. Chardonnay Musque 809 clone, which was planted in the family's JK Vineyard, combines the fragrant aromas and flavors of Muscat with the creamy texture of Chardonnay. The fruit was cold fermented in stainless steel tanks with Epernay II yeast. The wine fermented for almost seven weeks and was stopped by adding a little sugar.
