2018 SUNNY’S BLOCK 375mL
Sweet, crisp, and complex
About the Wine
Our Sunny’s Block is a tribute to our beloved JUSTIN winery dog, Sunny, a yellow lab who would trek all the way back to our small block of Orange Muscat vines just before harvest to partake of one of the greatest treats on the face of the earth… ripe, orange muscat grapes. Sunny was one smart dog who knew how to live well for his fifteen years on this earth! This dessert wine, while sweet on the entry, finishes refreshingly crisp and fresh, and shows a beguiling, complex mixture of fruit, spice, and flowers.
Clear, day bright with a very pale straw color.
Aromatic and complex with honeysuckle, orange blossom, green apple, white peach, beeswax, melon, and subtle savory notes of chamomile flower, beeswax, and a hint of ginger.
The 2018 Sunny’s Block has an attractive mix of citrus, white flowers, peach, and tropical fruit on the entry, with sweetness matched by acidity that lightens the palate and keeps things fresh and clean throughout. The midpalate features fruit of green apple, citrus, and pear with honeysuckle and orange blossom floral elements joined by a little savory beeswax and subtle candied ginger on its complex finish.
Fermented in a small stainless steel tank and fermentation was arrested by adding neutral grape brandy
