Muscat Blanc À Petits Grains on Snooth

  • Il Conte d'Alba Moscato d'Asti Stella Rosa 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Nice hybrid between Moscato wine and champagne flavours. It seems to favour more on the champagne side, but is sweeter, more sugar, less bite and zest. Tiny bubbles, in the moscato. A bit light on the alcohol and wine taste. Well worth a try. Read More

  • Allure California Bubbly Peach NV

    Snoothrank:

    Alcohol makes itself known on the first sip as it is higher than other peach sparkling wines in its class, but a sweet mellow peach follows thereafter.

  • Villa Jolanda Moscato & Strawberry 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Fizzy, sweet, strawberry candy, all words that I would describe both this wine and a soda. Having unnoticeable alcohol, I suppose it would be more correct to call it a hard soda. Pretty bottle, nothing offensive, but also nothing unique. Perhaps a safe date-night choice, but missing the Moscato flavour per the label. Read More

  • Beringer Moscato 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet, delicious stand-alone wine that has all the benefits of Chardonnay without dryness. It is the only Moscato I've had so far that did not have a hint of bitterness or muskiness which is oft found with this grape variety. Also plays well with other flavours if you'd like to turn this into a summertime Sangria or add a dash of Schnapps (Blu... Read More

  • Riunite Trebbiano Moscato

    Snoothrank:

    Juicy peach, melon and apple aromas with a hint of spice. Off dry and effervescent with melon and peach flavors, a touch of lemon cream on the finish and a pinch of spice. Read More
