2015 Incantation~California  

With aromas of honeysuckle blossoms, melon, and citrus zest, this wine is a lively alternative to a Sauvignon Blanc. On the palate, layers of apricot nectar, tangerine, and green apple result in a finish both crisp and bright.

Enjoy Incantation chilled as an aperitif when you host your next gathering.

Overview

Incantation 2015 is an off-dry Rhône-style white wine blend that may be served slightly chilled or even over ice. This light-bodied wine is intended for popular enjoyment during informal gatherings or casual sipping with everyday meals. 

Grapes grown in Los Alamos area were hand harvested late August through September. “Living Legend” Louis Lucas, vineyard owner and manager, planted some of the first commercial wine grapes in Santa Maria Valley, Edna Valley and Paso Robles and continues to produce superb grapes.

The distinctly flavored Orange Muscat (among the many Muscats grown worldwide, but one that is popular in California and Australia) was blended with Viognier and Malvasia Bianca, two grapes made famous in the Rhône region of France. The addition of Muscat Canelli’s sweetness is perfectly balanced by its crisp acidity. Orange Muscat frames the blend with citrus components; the Viognier contributes floral notes; and the Malvasia Bianca adds mouthfeel and minerality.
