Moscato Rose

Wine Glass Rose.jpg
Serve in a Rosé Wine Glass
Moscato Roses are fruity sweet, effervescent rose wines produced with dark muscat grapes like Moscato rosa del Trentino or the black-purple Muscat Hamburg. Like most roses, their color comes from the wine must's extended contact with the red grape skins.

Made around the world, the Moscato grape produces some of the most delightful sweet wines, ranging from very delicate to quite lush. The perfumes of a Moscato wine are delightful and instantly appealing, with notes of peach, apricot, orange blossom and ginger that are dominant. These wines are made to emphasize the aromatics and freshness, so most examples of Moscato are made without oak and are released early for immediate pleasure.

Moscato Rose is a treat enjoyed on its own or with simple desserts, such as pound cake or fresh strawberries or peaches.
