2015 Terue Muscat

$ 18.00 / Bottle

Only 85 cases made! From the Eola Springs Vineyards, this dry Muscat exudes aromatics of fresh grapes, light citrus, and sweetness but is delightfully dry and balanced on the refreshing finish.
Chris Blanchard, MS

I absolutely love the way this wine smells. So complex in its aromatics. I barely know where to begin. Immediately the wine is floral; rose petals, lavender, gardenias, jasmine, honeysuckle, and citrus blos- soms. Next I smell the fruit; grapefruit, guava, lychee, orange, pineapple, Bosc pear, mango, melon and peach. Finishing on the top notes are ginger, cardamom, nutmeg and cinnamon. It really reminds me of walking through a garden on a warm spring day.

The wine is nice and dry, yet the fruit is luxurious and the floral notes give the impression that this is off dry. It’s not, but it’s beautiful. The wine is a fruit sal- ad of cantaloupe, melon, pear, peach and citrus segments, sprinkled with chopped basil, lemongrass and mint. The wine is medium to full bodied with a nice finish of lively acidity and a tiny bitterness, like a tasty piece of fresh orange pith. When you breathe out, the wonderful fruit, flowers and spices leave a smile on your face.

Another totally versatile wine that would be supreme as a starter with that aforementioned fruit salad. It would also absolutely kill it with Chinese or Viet- namese food, for instance either salt and pepper shrimp with a spicy dipping sauce, or spring rolls filled with shrimp, pea shoots and mint.
