Muscat, the "nectar of the Gods" is grown all over the world. With its strong and distinctive perfume, muscat is thought to be the oldest domesticated grape variety. Most likely cultivated by the Greeks and then introduced to Southern France by the Romans around the 1300s, muscat was brought to California in the 1850s. Originally planted mainly for table grape and raisin production, some adventurous wineries would use it to make small batches of dessert wine. Muscat is made in a multitude of styles. From light and bone dry, or lemony effervescent like Italy's Asti Spumantes, to sweet nectar concoctions, muscat always has a pronounced, sweet, floral aroma and flavor.
Woodbridge Winemaker's Selection Dessert Muscat offers heady aromas of orange blossoms and sweet apple and tastes vivaciously sweet and bright. Think of warm evenings laced with the scent of blooming jasmine. Possessing heady and intoxicating layers of orange blossom, sweet apples and spice, this wine finishes clean and lively with effervescent flavors of lemon zest. A sunset sipper, our Dessert Muscat is the perfect companion to fresh fruit and cheese, or a warm crisp made with the fruits of summer or fall… or just on its own.
