  • I don’t see nearly enough sparkling wine from Brazil on restaurant menus ... one of some members of the Muscat family. These are fun, fizzy wines guaranteed to please large crowds.Terroir plays a role here, too. The sloping valleys of Brazil were carved by lava flow. The basaltic soils resulting from the lava impart trademark characteristics. ... Read More

  • 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

  • Villa Jolanda Mango Moscato NV

    Snoothrank:

    Smell the mango, taste the mango, roll around in sugary sweet. Date night dessert wine that would work with cheese or chocolate, but is a candy all its own. Like its sister wine Passionfruit, I'd like more of a wine taste rather than soda and can do without the spritzer-like finish, but these are details and personal preferences. Hats off to ...

  • Villa Jolanda Moscato Passion Fruit NV

    Snoothrank:

    Date night wet champagne sibling that adds sweet and fizz to a cheese plate pairing. Fruity floral scent fills the air from opening the bottle. You can surely smell and taste the passion fruit here which makes it quite unique amoungst its peers. A candy-like dessert with very little kick, the two changes I would make are more wine-like taste ... Read More
