Another inexpensive Moscato? Well ,,, I did say that I’d be making my way through a few that are available in my local stores. So I’m just keeping my promise.
Winemaker: The Naked Grape
Notes: In the glass, this California Moscato was a pale, bubbly yellow. On the nose I found sweet peach with floral notes. On the tongue, this Naked Grape was light-bodied, lightly viscous, and lightly effervescent. On the palate, I tasted nectarine, honey, notes of orange and green melon rind on the finish. Acidity was all right, and the alcohol was pegged at 8.5% on the label. On the whole, I thought it was fine. However, I did wish it had something more in the flavor profile – maybe some touches of spice. Even so, I’m sure plenty of folks are enjoying this Moscato – perhaps with their favorite light summer dessert (I’m imagining an orange bundt cake for some reason).
