100% Moscato from California. SRP of $7 and available everywhere for $6.
Sample received courtesy the winemaker for review purposes.
From the bottle:
“Light-bodied Moscato with floral aromas, semi-sweet palate, and a soft, lingering finish.
Crisp, bright aromas balance sweet notes which pair with pad thai, chineses chicken salad or vegetable curry.
Serve chilled now or store away from direct sunlight for up to 2 years after purchase.
Today’s review is a reader request and I have to admit I was a little wary of this one. I’ve enjoyed all the FlipFlop wines that I’ve tried to date, but the sweetness level put me on alert, thinking we might be dealing with something like a White Zinfandel.
Luckily those fears were unfounded. The 2010 FlipFlop Moscato begins with light floral, citrus, and orange peel aromas. The wine tastes…Sweet! The predominant flavors are apricot, peach, orange zest, and honey with some pineapple on the finish. There’s also a nice little bit of underlying minerality. A soft light-bodied wine that goes down easy. One sweet little number — figuratively (the taste) and literally (the price).
