Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Terra d’Oro 2016 Moscato displays a stunning golden hue in the glass. This wine is vibrant with flavors of lemon curd, apricots, and peaches. Intense floral notes reminiscent of honeysuckle lure the nose, with an underpinning of clean citrus. More than a dessert wine, this Moscato is exceptionally versatile, balancing sugar with acidity and delivering a long, smooth finish
Vineyard Notes
Moscato, also called Muscat, is grown in nearly every wine producing region in the world, resulting in an array of styles for this ubiquitous wine. It is believed the name may have been derived from the French word musque, meaning “to be perfumed”— a fitting moniker for an intensely aromatic variety. California’s sun-soaked hillsides and cool Mediterranean summer nights impart a deep concentration of aromas and flavors to the Moscato grown here. The Terra d’Oro 2016 Moscato grapes were hand-picked from the Artois Vineyard in the Northern Sacramento Valley. The vineyard’s combination of well-drained, sandy soil and steep hillside plantings stresses the vines just enough to ensure a light crop of ripe, intensely perfumed fruit.
Production Notes
After gentle pressing, 70% of the juice is inoculated with yeast. The remaining sweet, unfermented juice is kept at very low temperatures, then added back to the blend, creating a bright, clean and perfectly balanced wine.
Winemaker Notes
The Terra d’Oro Moscato is crafted in a dramatically different manner than other varietals produced at the winery. All of the Moscato grapes are destemmed and crushed into stainless steel tanks and left overnight before pressing. This “cap and drain” method keeps the grapes in contact with their skins for an extended period, delivering increased varietal intensity.
Food Pairing Notes
For a delicious meal, serve the Terra d’Oro 2016 Moscato with fruit basket cake with a jumble of fresh sliced peaches, Stilton and apricots, or spicy Thai food.

I had the doro Moscato while in Florida and it was one of the best I have had. Unfortunately after returing to PA i can not find it anywhere. I was told by our total wine shops that no one in PA carries it. Any way you could start dealing with PA area especially in the Glen Mills PA area where I live
