2017 Terue Dry Muscat

Incredibly honeyed on the nose yet dry on the palate with intoxicating notes of honeysuckle, peaches, and lychee.

Grilled peaches and burrata with a drizzle of honey is the perfect way to accompany this wine.

Enticing aromas of fresh pineapple, lemon curd, orange blossom, and lychee lead way to a crisp citrus and spice palate. Super fun for salad course!
Brooks has it all — Great story, great people, great wines.

Vintage Notes

A wet, cool spring delayed flowering until late June, which set the stage for a later harvest than the previous three vintages. Hot, dry conditions prevailed through the summer, yielding heat spikes in August. With a larger than normal fruit set, the grapes enjoyed long hang time leading up to harvest. Conditions cooled and brought in scattered rains with the harvest, which began at Brooks on the 28th of September and ran through November 1st, almost returning to normal average harvest dates in the Willamette Valley. The wines from the vintage show fresh fruit flavors and lively acidity. In all, it will be remembered as a classic vintage in Oregon!
