Monterey County, California

Muscat Canelli is thought to be the oldest grape variety, having been confirmed as growing around the Mediterranean for centuries. This estate-grown vintage from Monterey offers aromas of rose petals and fresh flavors of crisp Granny Smith apples, melon and green mango. Chill this off-dry wine and enjoy as an aperitif or paired with Asian-influenced dishes, sushi or fresh fruit.
