Wine Review: This pale straw colored Moscato from Mirassou is a good value. It opens with a mild apricot bouquet with a hint of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a ripe mild apricot with notes of tangerine and hints of honeysuckle and faint lime. The finish is pleasantly sweet and refreshing. This dessert wine would pair nicely with macaroon cookies. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Intense fruit aromas of orange blossom, peach, ripe pineapple and citrus overwhelm the nose. These bright and fruit-forward aromas extend to the palate through luscious flavors of sweet tropical fruit, mandarin orange and honey, all wrapped in a delightful acidity. Pair with white chocolate creme brulee.
