Winemaker Notes

Representing purity and innocence in Japanese, muku is absolute euphoria in a bottle. The 2016 muku is comprised of carefully selected one-acre blocks of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon which make their home at 1,400 feet in rocky, volcanic soils. The elevation and earth produce an intensely perfumed and concentrated juice. The delicate fruit is nurtured for an extra month on vine until golden brown, hand-harvested, and gently pressed to extract an almost syrup-like juice. In the cellar, the grapes are cold fermented to allow a slow sugar to alcohol conversion which is designed to preserve the muku’s heavenly bouquet. Fermentation ends at about 10 degrees brix to achieve the perfect marriage between sugar, acid and alcohol. Bursting with candied apricot, guava and peach, and hints of crisp minerality, this wine pairs perfectly with a cheese course, fruit galette, or simply on its own. Enjoy now, and enjoy often.
