Review date: December 3, 2016

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.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
