90 Points - Owen Bargreen
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.

Chef
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.

Winemaking 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!
