Red Moscato

Wine Glass Zinfandel.jpg
Serve in a Zinfandel Wine Glass
Red Moscatos are fruity sweet, effervescent red wines produced with dark muscat grapes like the black-purple Muscat Hamburg. Like most red wines, their dark ruby to garnet 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.

Red Moscato is a treat enjoyed on its own or with simple desserts, such as chocolate cake or creme brulee and even spicy barbecue where their sweetness and effervescence matches and compliments the spice of the bbq sauce.
