Muscat Blanc on Snooth

  • Il Conte d'Alba Moscato d'Asti Stella Rosa 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Nice hybrid between Moscato wine and champagne flavours. It seems to favour more on the champagne side, but is sweeter, more sugar, less bite and zest. Tiny bubbles, in the moscato. A bit light on the alcohol and wine taste. Well worth a try. Read More

  • Viano Vineyards California Hillside White NV

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine for £12 from a shop in London's Chiswick [www.thegoodwineshop.co.uk].It is made from a blend of 80% colombard,15% chenin blanc and 5%,muscat. I started the bottle last night with my supper of fishcakes with salad.This is a dry wine and it is quite acidic with a lot of grapefruit style fruit.There is also a suggestion... Read More

  • Cheval Quancard Cuvee Hortense Prestige 2018

    Snoothrank:

    You see: you do not have to pay an arm and a leg to drink good white Bordeaux; this wine proves the rule... a pale yellow in the glass with an electrifyingly spicy gooseberry nose. So far so good... and entry does not disappoint: smooth white fruit such as kiwi, lychee and gooseberry on the palate, with a clean finish. An excellent wine for th... Read More

  • If you haven't had wines from Romania, you’re missing out. Big time!I know this is a bold statement. With so many amazing wines being produced worldwide today. But, with that being said, I am convinced that there should be room in our cellars for some good bottles of Feteasc Neagr (Black Maiden in English), arguably, the most renowned native gra...

  • Mirassou Moscato NV

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet white wine with hints of pear, peach, and perhaps cotton-candy grapes. Wet to start with a slight dry finish, but not tart or bitter. Light and refreshing, surely a party favourite or delicious enough to enjoy on it's own after dinner. I think this one gets unjustly overlooked and should definitely be considered a spring/summer classic Read More

  • After all the Christmas and New Year festivities, I have to escape for a good curry! We all have a favourite curry but matching these exotic dishes with wine can be tricky. Come to think of it, I often drink lager! But, as restaurant lists improve giving more thought to your wine can brings tasty rewards.   The spicy flavours of Indian food are ... Read More
