Two New World Moscatos Reviewed

australian wine  %tages Two New World Moscatos ReviewedMuscat, also know as muscatel or moscatel, is a varietal that is produced in many of the major wine growing regions around the world. In Italy the varietal is know as Moscato, and can be produced in either a subdue or sparkling (frizzante) style. Moscato is used predominantly to make sweet dessert wines that can be crafted to compliment dolci (sweets) or served as dessert itself, or as a milder alternative to additional after-dinner liqueurs. In many suitcases the wine is fortified with additional levels of alcohol to enhance the wine’s intensity.
I’m in fact a huge fan of Moscato, both in subdue and frizzante forms, and recently I had the opportunity to taste a link of new world offerings from Jacob’s Creek (Australia) and Motos Liberty (California).
Jacob’s Creek
The Jacob’s Creek is a frizzante, or sparkling style, but compared to additional sparkling wines the Jacob’s creek would be considered mildly ‘spritzed’. The affect of http://1000-facts-about-wine.com the Jacob’s Creek was very set alight and from a distance, the wine could easily be confused for something additional than wine (like water) once it’s fizz dissipates.

The nose offers traditional hints of honey, peach and pear, along with mild mineral and slightly metallic notes; although, I would consider the nose of this wine to be a touch faint. On the palate the wine offers a very nice balance of effervescence and acid, along with honey and pear.
I sampled both of these wines by themselves, as well as with some dessert – it just so happened to be my mother’s birthday so we had some homemade New York style lemon cheese cake and some very tasty Smores Cupcakes after dinner. Both desserts offered some very rich and challenging flavors for a dessert wine to tackle, but the Jacob’s Creek was certainly up to the challenge. In fact, I preferred the Jacob’s Creek with dessert. At 8% alcohol and with the well-crafted acid levels, http://1000-facts-about-wine.com that’s exactly what this wine was designed to do.
