Silverdale, WA 7% alc. (Purchased on 7/5/13)
Excellent very tightly sealed cork gives a subtle pop as it’s extracted. Fine frothy sparkle (frizzante’) as it’s poured into a glass. Brilliant pale straw color and typically aromatic fruity, melon and orange Muscatty nose. Tingles on the tongue. Quite sweet, but not syrupy and showing well-defined fruity Muscat flavors. Well-balanced lemony acidity and the sparkle help cut the sweetness.
For true Moscato lovers, this is a fine example and at this price, it’s really hard to beat. Serve it well-chilled with brunch or as a summer sipper with nuts and salty cheeses…or pour it over fresh berries or peaches for a light, but flavorful dessert.
