Gold Medal, Great Northwest Wine Competition
"It’s hard to believe that Abacela is entering its third decade, having first put grapes in the ground in 1995. But it’s equally difficult to remember a time when Hilda and Earl Jones weren’t championing grape growing in the Umpqua Valley. This Muscat is absolutely marvelous vintage after vintage. This example reveals classic aromas of orange blossom, rosewater and lychee, followed by flavors of tropical fruit, particularly mango and passionfruit. It’s off-dry at 3% residual sugar and is a delicious brunch wine."
