About 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.
