Tatu Estates 2019 Lodi Orange Muscat
Orange Muscat is one of the forty siblings in the Muscat family.
As you would expect, citrus dominates in the mouth. These are natural esters formed during fermentation. Tatu Estates 2019 Orange Muscat also showcases some floral fragrances, like daffodil and rose in the attack. The aromatic palate quickly extends to lime, lemon, apple and pear. Toward the end, stonefruit characters like nectarine and peach appear. There is a clear sweetness in the attack and a round mouthfeel. This wine is refreshing with a crisp acidity. This Orange Muscat has good length and overall, is very easy and pleasant to enjoy.
Hints of mandarin and orange in the finish will pair well with egg bites, pasta with seafood or light desserts. Try it chilled with the featured recipe: Lemon Twist Rice Pudding.
