Winemaker Notes

#9 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

2007 was an excellent Sauvignon Blanc vintage. The extended harvest lasted for over a month starting with Hopkins Starr Ranch in the north and ending with Dutton-Cohen in the southwestern hills above Occidental. Several new vineyards were added to the mix, all recently planted to Musqué: Dutton-Jewell, Crinella and Cresta d'Oro, part of our Meredith Estate.

This compelling blend allures the senses with hints of citrus blossoms, lychee fruit and... View More

Critical Acclaim

WS 96
Wine Spectator

A rocket beam of vibrancy, with effusive honeysuckle notes and ripe honeydew melon, citrus, pear and apricot flavors that have amazing structure, depth and body. Ripe flavors end with a mouthwatering finish, where the mineral and spice details echo on and on. Drink now through 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 3,880 cases made.

With the potential to produce some of the finest white wines in the world, Germany is one of the world’s most misunderstood winegrowing countries. Many wine consumers of a certain age will recall with amusement and a twinge of horror the sugar-laden Liebfraumilch of their formative drinking years, and surely these bulk-produced, saccharine bottles can still be found. But today Germany is building its reputation upon fine wines at all points of the spectrum from sweet to dry, the best of which can age for many decades. The world’s northernmost region for quality wine production, Germany faces some unique viticultural challenges due to its extreme marginal climate. Fortunately for the lover of German wine, because these wines are still a bit under the radar, they tend to remain surprisingly affordable—for now.

Germany is best known for white wines, particularly Riesling, which is cold-hardy enough to survive very chilly winters, and has enough natural acidity to create balanced wines even at the highest levels of residual sugar. These are classified by ripeness, and can be picked early for dry wines with searing acidity, or as late as January following the harvest for lusciously sweet ice wines. Other important white varieties include fairly neutral workhorse Müller-Thurgau as well as Grauburguner (Pinot Gris) and Weissburguner ([Pinot Blanc]). Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) grown in warmer pockets of the country is, at its best, elegant and structured enough to rival red Burgundy.
