"Muscat holds a fond place in my memories of travel to the north of Italy. There I found many different types of Muscat, but I particularly prized the fine white and yellow varieties. For JoieFarm’s estate vineyard, I chose to plant 2 acres of Moscato Giallo, also known as Goldenmuskateller or Yellow Muscat. Muscat is an intensely aromatic varietal, both floral and fruity. While most other grape varieties seem to be at their best mimicking a broad spectrum of diverse flavours, the true charm of Muscat is that it tastes as though you are actually enjoying the grapes themselves. That is why we call our Muscat “The Pure Grape.” This wine is an amazing low-alcohol, super-fresh, dry aperitivo. It is delicious on its own, with deep-fried snacks, salty meat and cheese, or a great pairing to spicy aromatic food.
Varietal: Moscato Giallo (Yellow Muscat) 100%
