Quail Series Morio-Muskat

Quail Series Morio-Muskat Wine Details

Description: A cross of Pinot Blanc and Sylvaner, Morio-Muskat offers delicate fruit flavors and aromas suggesting peaches and honeysuckle. This unique wine is well-matched with fresh fruits and cheeses, or can be enjoyed by itself well-chilled on a sunny afternoon.

Varietal Definition
Pinot Blanc:
White grape popular for the dry white wines it produces. Increasingly grown in California, the Northwest, Northeast, Canada.
Widely grown in the Alsace region of France, Germany and Central Europe. Suited to temperate zones, the vine is high-yielding and the grape produces an "easy" white wine with lightly spicy, floral flavors and mild intensity. Once very popular in California, it seems to have fallen victim to changing fashion in recent years and been replaced by Johannisberg Riesling in current taste. It has also been crossed with the latter grape to yield the Muller-Thurgau hybrid grape and another hybrid version called Scheurebe as well as several other crossings of a similar nature.
