2018 muku 375ml Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc
Representing purity and innocence in Japanese, muku is absolute euphoria in a bottle. The 2018 muku is produced from carefully selected, one-acre blocks of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. These blocks make their home at 1,400 feet of elevation, in rocky, volcanic soils of the Hambright series. The delicate fruit is nurtured for an extra month on vine. Once harvested, the golden-brown grapes are gently pressed to extract an almost syrup-like juice, which is intensely perfumed and concentrated. In the cellar, the fruit is cold fermented to allow a slow sugar to alcohol conversion, which is designed to preserve the muku’s heavenly bouquet. Bursting with candied apricot, guava and a hint of crisp minerality, this wine pairs perfectly with a cheese course, fruit galette, or simply on its own. Enjoy now, enjoy often.
