Fall Creek Vineyards Muscat Canelli

Posted by on April 19, 2011

Vineyard: Fall Creek Vineyards, Tow, TX

Type of wine: Muscat (sweet white)

Nose: peach, sweet

Palate: peach, sweet fruits

Rating: 3 out of 5

Price: $14

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.

    Have you thought of pairing this wine with spicy TexMex dishes. Chef Ross Burtwell has some killer Buffalo Enchiladas and they are very spicy. A semi-sweet wine like this goes extremely well, better in fact than any dry red wine. Sweet and spicy is one of the classic pairings.

    Another thing to keep in mind is if the grapes are actually grown in Texas or if they are brought in from California. This can vary from year to year with the weather. Texas Muscat is particularly good when available.

    I haven’t thought about pairing this with a spicy food. Due to the sweetness I found myself drinking it with sweeter foods to cut some of it. I may have to give that a shot if I see another bottle to pick up in the store. Thanks for the suggestion!
