Most people completely write off Moscato without having tasted a truly excellent example in context. After a big meal of heavy reds a little plate of fresh fruit and a glass of low alcohol, slightly fizzy and sweet Moscato will make you feel like Charlemagne (or another Bearded King). Try it and you’re welcome.
Muscat Of Alexandra/Moscatel – The same variety that makes Moscato d’Asti, Muscat Beaumes de Venice and Australian Muscat. The naturally high sugar and acid in the grape made it a robust and therefore popular wine before sanitation was properly understood. The balance and highly aromatic nature of the grape makes it a beautiful variety for sweeter wines.
