This is a blend of two varietals: Viognier and Chardonnay Musque. The Viognier comes from a new grower for us in south Osoyoos. The Chardonnay Musque is estate grown at Blasted Church Vineyards. Both varieties were harvested in mid to late October.
The Chardonnay Musque was left on its skins for 24 hours to extract full muscat flavours. The Viognier was pressed off skins immediately and fermented cool. The wines were made separately and were only blended weeks before bottling. The Chardonnay Musque fermentation was stopped to retain some residual sugar in the wine.
