Our Belle Reserve 2015 is a blend of 60% Viognier and 40% Moscato di Canelli. In the glass it shows as a deep yellow with gold nuances. On the nose it is clearly Viognier, as it opens up with peach and melon, followed by some floral notes coming from the Moscato grapes. The sustained alcohol content (14.3%) makes this white wine full bodied, intense, and warm with a deep aftertaste and a big volume. The Viognier grapes have been harvested in our Yuba vineyards on the 25th of August at the same time when the Moscato di Canelli was harvested in Kelseyville. Both wines aged apart in stainless steel tanks for 6 months and blended together prior bottling. This wine has no residual sugar.
