2019 Sparkling Muscat

2019 Sparkling Muscat

Stunningly aromatic with expressive layers of brined lemon, orange blossom water and stone fruits with wonderful, food-friendly acidity.

This is our first vintage of Sparkling Muscat! 92% Orange Muscat from Muska Vineyard and 8% Early Muscat from Eola Springs Vineyard, both in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. The wine was aged on the lees for 17 months before being disgorged.

Only 130 cases produced!

You had me at Champagne method Sparkling Muscat! So incredibly aromatic and complex with notes of citrus, stone fruit, tropical fruit and a sweet orange marmalade finish.

Perfect paired with almond pound cake with lemon zest, toasted almonds and a dusting of powdered sugar.

A new addition to our sparkling line up, exuding orange blossom, sherbert and Fruit Loops. On the palate this wine is fresh, with fine bubbles and a soft finish. This wine is ready to be served as an aperitif at your next get together.
Brooks has it all — Great story, great people, great wines.

Vintage Notes

A wet, but warm spring with a few mild frosts during late April and fewer than average heat spikes.
Near-record precipitation amounts during late June and early July brought increased disease pressure to the region.
The vintage will be remembered for the early rains in September and rapid cool down into October which challenged harvesting decisions. The cool vintage came largely from substantially lower maximum temperatures while minimum temperatures were near average to slightly above average.
A classic Oregon vintage!
