Moiselle Pink Moscato (1 out of 5)

Standard

 

 

 

Image                                                             Yay! The Moiselle Pink Moscato has an image! The red one that I liked a lot does not, as you recall from my review over a month ago. I decided to get the pink moscato since I enjoyed the red one so much. I did not dig the pink as much as the red. I thought I would dig it more, due to the presence of ye olde nectarine (seriously. A nectarine, although I know the phrase “ye old nectarine” likely could describe your elderly neighbors). Not so much.

This beauty was priced at the “steal” of $4.99. I could have gone a whole $1.31 less with the Winking Owl and had more fun.  It has a pleasant aroma, not overpowering and yet also not very much there in way of smelling anything. Not the sort of wine that Vlad the Impaler would have used as smelling salts on any of his victims, but I would have hoped there would be some sort of fragrance coming off the bottle when it was opened. No dice.

It is a nice light pink color, and it does indeed have a nice smattering of nectarine and raspberry. However, together…it gives me great pause. Like someone picking a Jesus and Mary Chain song over “Let’s Go Crazy” in an 80’s bracket. The two together..I guess I expected some sort of liquid Fruit Loops type wine, and instead it was closer to Arbor Mist watered down with Welch’s White Grape juice. WAY TOO SWEET. If this were a Riesling or an Ice Wine, I would completely agree with the sweetness. There’s not any sort of crisp, earthy quality to the wine either. After chilling for over a week, I decided to try to have a glass last night. Blech. Half of a small glass and I dumped the rest down the sink. Seriously, Dylan, if you want the rest of the bottle, it’s yours. Free of charge, but not free of warnings from me. It seriously tastes like glorified fruit juice with a slight nip of alcohol. Thanks, but no thanks.

As I said, if you want something ridiculously sweet to go with a nice, moist slice of lemon cake with vanilla frosting (recipe forthcoming), this is the one. I had a little with the lemonilla cake (my name, my recipe, bitches) and it went perfectly. But I really do not want to have to eat a piece or a whole fucking cake just to make the wine work. It’s a lot of work. I will hold back the wine jury until I try the white moscato they have… watch for that coming soon.

I would not recommend this wine unless you want something really sweet to pair with massive amounts of cake slathered with delicious buttercream frosting. Otherwise, I would pass.

About generationgbooks

I read a ridiculous amount of books in a ridiculously quick amount of time. I read everything- fiction, history, sports, political science, fantasy, young adults, kids, romance- everything. I have worked in books almost half of my life now, and I never get bored with them. I need an outlet for books, where I can reach many people who may or may not give a fig about my opinions. I'm kind of known for rambling about books, so I figure it's about time I get off my lazy ass and take it to the blogosphere, where I have had the great luck of meeting many wonderful people inflicted with this book-disease. Personal stuff? Not much. I work too much, I'm single so I have more time to deal with this and less to deal with BS. I'm a die-hard Duranie and 80's fan. I am way too entertained with social media and astrology(for those of you who give a fig, I'm a Capricorn, or the sexier description- a seagoat.) for mine and the world's- own good. Only insanity can result from me blogging. That said, here goes!
