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

Cuvée Pinot – Santa Margherita

Unexpected Wine Sharing – Part 1/2

Last Thursday was the birthday of this amazing French guy. It was not specifically a wine party, but my friends and I all thought it would be a good idea to start the night with something smoother.

We ended up with three different white wines. Obikwa Moscato, from South Africa, Frontera Moscato, from Chile, and something very peculiar which I had not heard or tasted before, Santa Margherita Cuvée Pinot from Italy.

Up until that day, I thought that I could only like Moscatos, since I had tried Sauvignon Blanc and Rieslings but I don’t think I have found one to fancy.

Perhaps it was the mixture of the two different types of grapes, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Bianco, or maybe its elegance, but this wine climb up to one of my favorites. It had a soft light color and it was definitely less sweet that the moscatos, butit felt as it was a more serious wine. Still rather versatile, as I am sure It can match many different food.

The smell: timid but elegant. Intriguing, it makes you feel curious.

Sweetness: 3.6/5

Sourness: 3.4/5

Fruitiness: 4.1/5

Style: Light – Medium
