Muscat on Snooth

  • Tisdale Moscato NV

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this on a whim because the local grocery store has it at 3/$10 and found it to be quite the happy surprise. I'm a sweet wine drinker and this was sweet, fruity, and light perfect for a hot day! I really like this since some sweet wines can be thick and this is not like that at all. Definitely a go to for me. 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

It is a hilarious scene based on the poor choice Kermit made for their special dinner. The term muscatel became ... Read More

  • Martin & Weyrich Moscato Allegro 2006: A sweet sparkling wine with delicious undertones of apricot and honey. I loved the way the tantalising bubbles played on my tastebuds. Can be enjoyed by itself or with a fruit tart or even a creamy risotto, enjoy!
