2003 Muscat Canelli

The Palmaz Vineyards 2003 Muscat Canelli draws its inspiration from France.  Dry, with a crisp acidity, this barrel-fermented Muscat is most similar to the dry vendange tardives of the Haute Rhine.  Allowed to rest "sur lie" until bottling in August 2004, this elegant wine exhibits distinctive aromas of mango, lime and apricot, strong mid-palate flavor and a delicious, lingering, honeyed finish.  The 2003 Muscat Canelli pairs nicely with spicy Asian dishes, and with fresh fruit after dinner.
