Straw green color. Fruity, sweet aromas of honeysuckle, dried apples and pears, petit fours, and apricot jam with a round, crisp, effervescent, sweet light-to-medium body and a smooth, medium-length toasted almonds and sweet tea finish with no oak flavor. A sweet sparkler that hits the spot.

Sparkling Dessert Wines are effervescent sweet fruity wines with residual sugar levels of 5% brix or higher that are not from established sparkling dessert wine categories like Italian Moscato d' Asti or Canadian Sparkling Ice Wines. American examples are usually made with a variety of muscat grapes, labeled as 'Moscato", and may include other natural flavors like citrus or berries.
