I generally like Moscato wines. I tend to favor those that are quite sweet and very flavorful.
Grapes for the California Collection Moscato were picked as soon as they achieved the perfect balance of ripe fruit flavors and vibrant structure. Winemaking techniques were employed to maintain the vivid flavors naturally found in Moscato grapes.
This carefully crafted wine offers immediately pleasing peach-scented and honeysuckle aromas with fresh, sweet flavors of juicy stone fruit, honeydew melon, Fuji apple and ripe pears. It is beautifully balanced with crisp acidity and a clean finish.
Well, I could certainly taste the apple in the Beringer Moscato. It was clean and crisp, but absolutely not what I was looking for. I wanted a sweet wine – a clear sweet with no definite attributing taste to be specific. The color was a pale yellow, the nose again apple. Heck this was more apple-y than a wine made from apples!
While not in any way a bad inexpensive wine, it just wasn’t what I was expecting from a Moscato.
Have you tried the Beringer Moscato? What did you think?
As always, drink responsibly and please don’t drink and drive.
