Merlot-Long Country

Playful! That is the perfect word to describe this wine. And it is exactly how it makes you feel.

As a merlot, it is low in Tannin, which is a characteristic feature, but I would have expected it to be more layered. It is a two year old wine, and it was too flat, perhaps if it is aged for longer time.

Either way, it is a great choice to share with friends and spend a great time.

Fruitiness: 3.5/5

Sourness : 3.6/5

Moscato – Dilé

As promised when writing about Queen Adelaide, which is an excellent Moscato, I am now writing about a very different one.

White wines should be get better when chilled, as I had previously stated in my post “Why do white wines are better when chilled?”  Curiously this one got better when not too cold.  At the first sip, I would have not given it more than 2.6/5 but as we kept on drinking, it became more like 3.3/5. If you have read the wine ranks, you would know that this is a lot, since it changed from “don’t drink this” to “Ok, not so bad” status.

The problem with this Moscato is that it is too sweet! However, I am not saying it is absolutely bad, it was layered and it was possible to feel some Peaches and Guavas. Its color was absolutely beautiful, and just look at the bottle, it is really unique, and that was the reason we got it. If you are looking to make some wine pictures, it is a good choice.

Moscato – Queen Adelaide

As a fan of Moscatos, I am writing about his one with great pride. It felt like a royalty drink. I have to be honest, it is not very expensive, and because of the price I thought it was going to be very bad. It wasn’t!

Beautiful color, delicious smell, perfectly balanced. Not too sweet and bothers my tongue and not too sour. It was absolutely perfect. Highly recommended! Queen Adelaide for all amazing people out there.

Moscato – Yellow Tail

Moscatos are always a true beauty. They are suitable for almost any occasion and are good for any taste. The only problem is that sometimes they can be too sweet. Now, wouldn’t it be perfect if you could find one that is in perfect balance. Just the right amount of sourness and sweetness, keeping its elegance and finesse, but at the same be conceited, narcissist and above all charismatic.

This Yellow Tail is just like this. I am really surprised at this series of wine. Being Australian I did not thought they were too good. But I was wrong! I was wrong to the point of regret.

In a previous post I talked about the Shiraz, Yellow tail made me change how I feel about this types of wine, now I feel like I can actually like them. And with this Moscato I feel like Moscatos do not have to necessary be shy and playful, but that can actually be mature and sensual.

Moscato – Italian Botter

Alright, since i have been rating the Moscatos all so high, I think we can all agree that I really enjoy Moscatos. My favorite being Frontera, but this one, gave quite a surprise.

Judging by the bottle, you may think that it is giggly, naive and perhaps inconsistent. We had serious doubts when selecting it, but since it is a Moscato, we decided to give it a chace. And I am really glad we did so, cause it was certainly a surprise.

And guess what? It is bubbly, almost like a sparkling wine.  Perfect for sharing with friends and spending and easy going afternoon.

It hasn’t many layers but it isn’t flat and the finish is simply charming. Leaving your lips satisfied and with a smile but naughty enough to leave you wanting for more.

Of light color and sweet pineapple-ish smell. I may even dare to say that there was a taste of peach right before the finish.

Sweetness: 4.6/5

Fruitiness: 4.6/5

Fun Fact: Did you know that Moscatos are one of the hardest wines to make? because of it’s sweetness and lack of sourness bacterias are more likely to want to like in this medium, so winemakers have to add extra sulfides to it, but being careful not to saturate it.

But before you leave, check out this other two South African Moscatos, Cape Elephant and my close friend’s favorite, Obkiwa.

 

Moscato – Obikwa

Unexpected Wine Sharing – Part 2/2

Obikwa Moscato, from South Africa, is the second participant of the night. The first one was Santa Margherita Cuvée Pinot from Italy.

This wine, just as Frontera, is another perfect Moscato. As soon as you read the name, and you have to read to twice to make sure you are pronouncing it right, it feels as if you are entering and exotic adventure. .

I have read that white wines are supposed to have a touch of pineapple, but this was the first time I sense it. The pineapple spark is slight and quick, but it is there.

The smell: colorful.

This wine felt playful and you just got to smile when you take it. Perfect for my friend’s birthday party. At the same time, it was relaxing and soothing, I would also have it while reading or just writing in this blog

Moscato – Frontera

The Ballerina Wine


Many of my friends mentioned how much they like white wine and how they preferred it over red ones. However, every time I tried one, it wasn’t as satisfying as I was looking for.  Until one day that was in Carrefour and as I was trying to decide which new wine to try, I got a call from a close friend and he said:

– Go for a Moscato. – He sounded so sure about his recommendation that there was no room for doubts.

– Would a Chilean Moscato work? – I asked.
