2022 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 and day-bright with a very pale straw color.
Complex floral nose with honeysuckle, orange blossom, and ripe peaches before savory notes of beeswax, chamomile flower, and crystallized ginger.
The 2022 Sunny’s Block has an attractive mix of honeyed mango, caramelized sugar, candied apricots, melon, and lemon peel. The midpalate maintains freshness that balances the sweetness. The long complex finish shows notes of stone fruit, limoncello, and savory beeswax hints.
Fermented in a small stainless steel tank. Fermentation was arrested by adding neutral grape brandy
SUGGESTED FOOD PAIRINGS
Citrus Dessert Medley
This is a versatile dessert wine that should be served chilled. It is great when enjoyed with fresh fruit such as raspberries, cantaloupe, and mango with brandied whipped cream; sipped with some ginger almond biscotti; or even served alongside a savory dish of mango sticky rice with Vietnamese hot sauce.
