Muscat on Snooth

  • Tomasello Winery Blueberry Moscato NV

    Snoothrank:

    Well described on the label, this is a sweet Moscato-forward with blueberry wine. It's not that tart "picked too soon" blueberry either, it's the "hello harvest time!" blueberry in all it's natural candy sugaryness. That may be a little off-putting to sour faces, but I find it delicious with both fruit and chocolate. My critique is that the l... Read More

  • 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

I started the bottle last night with my supper of fishcakes with salad.This is a dry wine and it is quite acidic with a lot of grapefruit style fruit.There is also a suggestion of sour apple.It was a good match for my fishcake Read More

  • Cheval Quancard Cuvee Hortense Prestige 2018

    Snoothrank:

    You see: you do not have to pay an arm and a leg to drink good white Bordeaux; this wine proves the rule... a pale yellow in the glass with an electrifyingly spicy gooseberry nose. So far so good... and entry does not disappoint: smooth white fruit such as kiwi, lychee and gooseberry on the palate, with a clean finish. An excellent wine for th... Read More
