This lightly sparkling rosé opens with fragrant aromas of rose petal, candied cherry, honey and wild berry. As the label says, it scores an 8 on a sweetness scale of 1–10, with 10 being the highest.
This is a soft, gentle rendering of Muscat de Beaumes de Venise. The tropical fruit is ripe and sweet, but there’s a slightly creamy edge to the flavors and a hint of bitterness on the finish.
Full of ripe apples, honey and citrus, but it could use just a bit more zip and freshness to help balance the sugar. Crown-capped for easy opening; try this instead of a soda or cocktail when you want something sweet at the bar.
The nose is pleasant, packed with peaches and a touch of cinnamon. On the palate the wine is quite intense but the finish given this intensity, is a little shorter than I would have expected.
This corny looking bottle of sweet wine is not bad, and in some ways it is pretty good. Tropical fruit and gardenia aromas are clean, and the palate is friendly in feel, with likable banana and melon flavors. As stated, this is perfectly good for a simple sweet white.
This basic Moscato offers a mix of powdery tropical fruit aromas and oily notes. The palate’s citric acidity is what keeps it upright, while flavors of sweet melon, mango and citrus lead to an inconsequential finish.
