14.3% Alc. This varietal, a cross of Grenache Gris and Muscat of Alexandria developed by UC Davis over 50 years, only 200 acres in the world planted, was fermented dry with wild yeasts, and aged for 15 months in neutral oak on Symphony and the Italian Aromatic Malvasia lees. This clean, sharply focused super aromatic concoction screams of orange marmalade, lychee, peach and frangipani blossom. A splendid cocktail sipper with a stunning nose, try with a Gorgonzola and Parmesan pizza, spicy Asian food, or with my Argentinian Mother-in-Law’s Cuban roast shoulder of pork slathered in garlic, oregano and cumin. 2012: 90 points, Tasting Panel magazine.
