I love the floral aromatics of this wine! It reminds me of a dry summer day spent at the beach– salty sea air filled with white flowers and orange blossoms.
There are some effervescent bubbles in my glass, along with fruity notes of mangos, bartlett pears, and granny smith apples. Orange blossoms, jasmine tea and honey sticks end in a spicy white ginger finish. While this Moscato is sweet, it has some acidity, ensuring thaat it’s not too sweet. And that spicy finish kind of kicks that sweetness out of my mouth at the end of each sip.
Food pairing suggestions:
Spicy three bean chili, nachos with green hatch chili salsa, creamy spinach tortellini.
