Type of wine: Muscat (sweet white)
Nose: peach, sweet
Palate: peach, sweet fruits
Rating: 3 out of 5
I picked up this wine after having a rather pleasant surprise with Fall Creek Vineyard’s Granite Blush wine earlier this month. The wine is a white Muscat and has a slight effervescence. The nose of the wine is a sweet peach scent. The first taste of the wine is very much a peach flavor as well. You also get a hint of citrus, but it’s mostly peach throughout the entire taste. I could see using this wine as a dessert wine with a peach cobbler and it pairing rather nicely. Outside of this there’s not a whole lot of practical pairings for this wine. I can’t really fault the wine, it does peach and it does it very well, and that is unique in and of itself. Since I really don’t have anything to compare this wine to, i’m giving it a 3 out of 5. At the $14 price point, i’d only recommend purchasing this wine when pairing it with a semi-sweet dessert, and chances are there are better pairings out there.
