Muscat continues to be a source of serious playfulness at 2Hawk. We take the wine seriously, but we never feel the wine takes itself seriously. The fruit never fails to elicit surprise at picking with the sheer size of the bunches, but once the juice is liberated the delicious factor begins soaring. There is no doubt we love the intensely perfumed aromatics of stone fruit, lychee, orange peel, and rose water that gush onto the palate. The serious part of this wine comes with balancing the high natural acidity. The 2018 version is notably drier than previous versions, but maintains a sense of grace and style. Drink this while young, over the next 2 years, and enjoy its pairing versatility by mating it to baked panko-crusted chicken tossed in ghost pepper-mango-ginger glaze. - Winemaker's Notes

Available Vintages:

Varietal: Muscat
Muscat was one of the first grapes to be identified and cultivated and is, more accurately speaking, the name given to the family of four main sub-varieties. The most important is Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains and Muscat of Alexandria. Due to the high level of Monoterpenes they are almost unique in producing wines with a distinctively grapey and musky aroma. Muscat Blanc is fast becoming one of the world’s most popular light-skinned varieties making the Moscatel’s of Spain and Moscato’s of Italy. These wines are typically very fragrant and low-alcohol, sweet, sparkling wine. The grape is also grown in France, making bone-dry whites in Alsace and sweet fortified ‘Vins doux naturels’ in the hotter climes in south of the country. In Australia, it is the darker hued Muscat of Alexandria which forms the countries finest liqueur Muscats, delivering unctuous aromas of citrus peel and sweet spice. Good examples come from Barossa and Rutherglen Valley.

Country: United States
Although wine is made in all 50 states, it is understandable, with almost 90% of the country's production, that California is synonymous with domestic wine. As of 2010 harvest, reports indicate that Washington, New York & Oregon account for additional 6% of production, meanwhile Virginia, Missouri and Texas's wine industries are growing to a point beyond that of just a tourist attraction.

Region: Oregon
Oregon is without a doubt establishing a reputation for producing to some of America’s finest wines, made from Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Riesling. The Willamette Valley is the largest and most well known AVA. The Dundee and Eola hills, as well as Ribbon ridge are three of its most promising sub-regions.

Sub-Region: Rutherglen

Type: White
White wine is a wine whose color can be pale-yellow, yellow-green, and yellow-gold colored. The wine is produced from a variety of grape varieties. The flavor and color comes from the juice of the grape and sometimes the skin of the grape as well. Interestingly, not all white wine comes from white grapes. Some select red grapes are used as in Champagne.
