Bonterra Vineyards Dry Muscat 2017 Review

Well this is fun! Not often do we see a dry style from this sweet grape in the US, but here we are, and it’s delicious. The nose is all up in your face with sweet aromas of apricot, orange blossom, honeysuckle, and grapefruit; that’s a lot right? But the palate is dry and refreshing balancing all those intense aromas, keeping them in check with the excellent acidity offering a salty/sweet vibe. It’s not what you're used to, but you're gonna dig it.
