Bright gold color. Aromas of honeycomb, honeysuckle, and tangerine blossom with a satiny, crisp, spritzy, moderately sweet medium body and a sleek, interesting, medium-length cream soda and crushed peaches finish with fruit tannins. A bright and mouthwatering Moscato d’Asti.

Cranswick 2010 Botrytis Semillon Semillon
89 points
Brilliant golden amber color. Mature aromas of petrol, dried apricot, tepache, beeswax, and saffron with a round, crisp, sweet medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length golden raisin chutney, thyme, lavender, and lemon zest finish. An elegant semillon for dessert that has years of graceful aging ahead.
Apple Paple 2015 Semi-Dry Natural Apple Wine Poland
86 points
Minutely hazy pale gold color. Aromas and flavors of heirloom apple, perry, beeswax, and clover flower with a satiny, soft, dryish light-to-medium body and a scant finish that exhibits notes of cornbread with papery tannins and no oak flavor. A fruit wine with an old world charm.
Stella Rosa NV Gold Semi-Sweet Wine Italy
83 points
Golden straw color. Aromas and flavors of lemon sorbet and labrusca grapes with a supple, soft, petillant, fruity sweet light-to-medium body and a smooth, fast finish with accents of peach jam with soft tannins and no oak flavor. An easy drinking wine with a sweet kick.
