Light straw color. Fruity, floral aromas and flavors of peach phosphate, golden raisin chutney, and honeysuckle with a supple, tangy, effervescent, fruity sweet medium body and a smooth, captivating, medium-long finish with notes of honeyed dried apricot and wet limestone with no oak flavor. A delicious and pure moscato d’Asti with excellent flavor, balance, and acidity.

Sparkling Sweet Wine

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.
