Perry Creek Muscat Canelli El Dorado County 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Vineyard Notes: The Perry Creek Muscat is Estate grown on 5 acres that were planted in 1990. Perry Creek Vineyards is located in the highest appellation in California. The Fair Play appellation, which is in El Dorado County, has an elevation of 2,400 feet. The Perry Creek estate vineyard sits along a ridge-top above the middle fork of the Consumnes River. During growing season, the vineyard experiences warm sun-filled days and cool evenings with a constant breeze flowing toward the valley below. Winemaker Tasting Notes: Ripe pink grapefruit and honeysuckle blossoms highlight the aromas of this Muscat; candied citrus fruit with ripe spiced pears and honey. This wine has bright acid and is clean and lively with a smooth finish.

The winery's 40 acres of premium vineyards are located in Fair Play Appellation. Decomposed granite soils and a balanced microclimate at a 2,500 foot average elevation allow us to produce premium grapes with the distinct flavor of the foothills. Our Fair Play Farms vineyard, planted in 1999, is one of the best in the entire Sierra Foothills. The grape growing sites in this vineyard were chosen to bring out the best quality in each varietal and all of the vines are pruned by hand. The first crops were dropped to increase vigor in the plant and to promote better fruit. All rootstocks and clones were matched to the unique soil situations in every block, creating the most distinction in the produced wines. Perry Creek’s winemaking team of Garrett Buckland, Stefan Tscheppe and Jonathan Pack combines experience from Napa, Austria and the Foothills. They share a vineyard driven approach, developing a personality and character for each wine they produce. At the same time they incorporate the typicity of the varietal and the unique flavors of the different vintages. The unique, complex and elegant flavors representing Perry Creek Winery and the Terroir of the appellation have earned us 90Pts+ ratings in Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and many other competitions.

ripe pink grapefruit and honeysuckle blossoms highlight the aromas of this Muscat. Candied citrus fruit with ripe spiced pears and honey. This wine has bright acid and is clean and lively with a smooth finish.
