The fifth installment of our R&D label was brought about by blending 2018 Orange Muscat with neutral grape spirits from a local distillery. The blend was aged about 2 years, then was amended with more Orange Muscat (2020) and grape spirits to create a rich and smooth dessert wine.
The color of pale straw, with orange blossom and honey on the nose. Strong honey flavor and a hint of caramelized sugar, like crème brûlée in liquid form.
91% Orange Muscat
9% neutral grape spirits (188 proof)
Food Pairing Notes
Berry tarts or pies; grilled peaches; aged white cheeses
This fortified white wine began in 2018 with Orange Muscat grapes, to which we added neutral grape spirits. The wine aged 2 years, and then was amended with more Orange Muscat and more spirits, then allowed to rest 7 months before bottling.
