Yellow straw color. Candied aromas of lemongrass, orange blossom, and apricot candies with a satiny, soft, petillant, sweet light-to-medium body and a smooth, brisk sweet ginger lemonade and honey finish with no oak flavor. A sweet and citrusy wine with a hint of sparkle.

Sparkling Sweet Wine

Serve in a Champagne Flute
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.
