Smirk Muscat

2019

Very pale silver-yellow straw: medium body. Fruit sorbet in a glass—refreshing sweet, ripe fruit flavors without being cloying. Delicate earthy white flowers nose, over mandarine and other citrus notes, like faint lemon and lime.

Why We Love It

A Taste of History

Made from one of the world’s oldest and most well-traveled grape varieties, Muscat, has more than 200 different variations and has been famed since before the times of ancient Greeks. It’s famed in Spain, Portugal, Italy and in Africa has been planted across the globe. In Egypt, Cleopatra was known to have tippled many a glass of Muscat of Alexandria. Strong women have good taste throughout history!

Delicious

This wine is a delicious and refreshing crisp white. It is full of citrus notes and pairs perfectly with taco night. Can’t wait to have it as a wine margarita!

Ultimate Spring Sipper

Trying out Smirk's newest vintage was like drinking sunshine in a glass! It had great smell that reminded me of fresh citrus and mandarin oranges. It made me look forward to warmer weather and spring sipping on this easy to drink white wine. I can't wait to indulge in more Smirk to come!

Light and citrusy.. Just the right hint of sweetness and a very juicy flavor. This will definitely be a crowd pleaser!!

Pleasantly surprised

I’m not a sweet wine drinker. When I saw this was a semi-sweet wine I was skeptical. But then I tried it and...it’s simply delightful!

Delicious and light

Smirk is absolutely delightful and tastes like spring. It’s fruity and just sweet enough to enjoy the whole bottle in one sitting. Pairs awesome with buffalo cheddar cheese. Even my husband loved it!

Hot tub relaxing wine

Smirk has just the right sweetness to enjoy anytime. With its citrus flavors, being light and fruity it pairs well with just about any meal. One of my new favorites since Fissata Blonde is no longer available.

Smirk, Muscat

Light body, smooth, easy to drink, and delicious citrus notes!! The aftertaste tastes like lime sorbet in my opinion. I even notice a hint of nuttiness and vanilla in the finish. This Muscat is so refreshing. I can't wait to drink it on my porch in the springtime.

Smirk is a crowd pleaser!

Smirk is the ultimate crowd pleaser! It is sweet enough for my friends that love Moscato and not too sweet for a red wine drinker like myself. This is a wine that I plan to keep in stock at my house at all times, it’s light and refreshing, a great start to the night, but it also pairs great with a spicy dinner or buffalo chicken dip.

My New Love

Ever since Luna was gone, my mom and I (both wine guides) have been waiting for something similar to come down the wine pipeline... the wait is over! Smirk is light, fruity, and fresh. I love the notes of peach fuzz. My new go-to white from TV! Love it!
