2016 Harvest at Bookcliff Vineyards - Best grapes and best weather

The harvest at Bookcliff Vineyards is in full swing. We are crushing reds on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The grapes are absolutely gorgeous this year. What a blessing. And the weather is cooperating. Sunny and dry with cool nights and warm days. This year Bookcliff will be making Late Harvest Muscat Blanc again. These are perfect conditions.

Bookcliff Vineyards Dry Muscat Blanc 2015 Ready for Purchase

The dry Muscat Blanc is back thanks to a plentiful crop in 2015.
This is a dry wine similar to a Sauvignon Blanc, but with tropical, floral notes up front. It shows flavors of lemon and lime and a crisp finish. Pairs well with mussels. 
If you are looking for a dry, crisp summer wine with some floral aromatics this is the ticket. Check it out.
