My Favorite Drinks
Moscato (Brown Brothers)...retails at major supermarkets at abt 25 bucks a bottle
This current release is a light straw colour with some youthful green tinges showing. The nose is lifted with aromas of freshly crushed grapes, musk and melon characters. In the mouth the wine is vibrant and mouth filling with a sherbet like flavour. A wine of universal appeal the retained carbon dioxide gives a frizzante effect – the result a lively and fresh wine in the mouth. Serve well chilled.
Asti (Martini)...Retails at major supermarkets at around 30 bucks a bottle.
Medium sweet Italian sparkling wine from the Asti region of Southern Piedmont. A close second to champagne at a fraction of the cost. Fruity crisp taste. Goes particularly well with orange juice and strawberries. Serve well chilled.
