The stylistic vision of this wine is based upon the Italian Moscato,
a Moscato of Asti; light, fresh and low in alcohol.
The nose opens with effervescent aromas of orange, peach, pear and
honeysuckle. The bright mouthfeel and refreshingly tangy acidity
featuring tart green apple is balanced with sweet, explosive pear
flavors. A slight effervescence cleanses the palate. The semi-sparkling
bubbles also contribute to a stimulating mouthfeel. The finish is
lively, clean and fresh, inviting another sip.
Great by itself on the patio. The perfect wine for brunch or dessert,
and also a good match with fresh strawberries, brandied pears,
strawberry-rhubarb meringue and cheesecake. Serve ice cold (to
preserve the CO2 bubbles) in a champagne flute and watch the
bubbles tickle your nose.
