Winemaking Notes: Sourgal Moscato is Perrone's flagship Moscato. Perrone's vineyards are northwest-facing. He believes that ripeness is easy to achieve if yields are kept reasonable. The vineyards cool down faster in the evening, and retain more acidity and freshness. The vines are 25-60 years old with an average yield of 40 hL/hA. The grapes are both estate sourced and purchased and are always harvested by hand. Sourgal is released in late November for immediate consumption.

"A creamy textured Moscato that offers outstanding length and finesse in its classic varietal notes of crisp green apples, mint, flowers and spices. Simply put, this is as good as Moscato gets."
