silvan-ridge-winery-semi-sparkling-early-muscat-2015-bottleA panel with Masters of Wine awarded this a gold medal at the 2016 Oregon Wine Competition, and it’s easy to see why. Argentine winemaker Juan Pablo Valot continues to produce this Oregon classic in a delightful and fun fashion with a delicately creamy effervescence. Fanciful aromas and flavors of honeysuckle, rosewater, dusty apricot, Sugarfina rosé gummy bears and Sweet Georgia Peach Pie come across with a combination of residual sugar (11%) and low alcohol that make this an ideal brunch wine.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 4,000 cases

Alcohol: 6%
