Praised by poets and kings since the dawn of civilization, muscat may be Asia Minor’s original grape variety, crossing, like the sun, from Orient to Occident as long as 6000 years ago. Known to Pliny as “uva apiana”, its exotic aromas of nectarine, honeysuckle and mandarin zest have seduced bees, Byron and the beau monde for millennia.

This gloriously sweet, exotically fragrant, extravagantly concentrated and complex nectar hails from a decades-old planting on California’s Central Coast, picked in the early dawn hours of Ocotber 2nd, 2012.
