Moonstone

Moonstone

The grapes used to make this ‘gem’ originally hails from the Rhône Valley and has a higher concentration in flavor & natural sugar for its longevity on the vine.  She’s harvested mid-November at 36 Brix and then aged 4 months in stainless steel. The results are a rich, gold-colored wine with a residual sugar of 6% and great legs.  Once coined as ‘Negligee in a Bottle’, Moonstone is always thought of as a dessert wine but few realize that it also offers a beautiful balance to spicier cuisines like Thai food or rich cheeses & charcuterie.

Fun Fact: The Moonstone is a more brilliant version of the Opal stone

Vineyard Notes
Late harvest wines have the most intense taste of any wine, not only a concentration in flavor and sugar but the grape actually produces more and develops a variety of flavors the longer it is on the vine.
