One for the sweet wine lovers today from Aldi, the non-vintage Arosa Sparkling Moscato Rosé.
Moscato sparkling wine from Italy. While it’s labeled a rosé, I’m guessing this wine is made from the more common white muscat grape family with a small amount of red wine like Merlot blended in rather than being a true rosé made from the red Moscato Rosa grape.
The Arosa Sparkling Moscato Rosé is available exclusively at Aldi and sells for just $5.99. It is imported by Arosa Wines.
Notes: Aromas and flavors of strawberries and bright cherries lead into a sweet, well-balanced finish
Food: Enjoy as an aperitif, with fresh fruit, desserts or on its own
Temp: Best when served chilled
The non-vintage Arosa Sweet Sparkling Moscato Rosé begins with a pleasant aroma of peach, strawberry and other berry fruit on the nose along with a bit of a floral aroma and just hint of bread. The wine tastes sweet, crisp and refreshing and at only 7% alcohol it goes down easy (perhaps too easy). It features a smooth mouthfeel, a good amount of bubbles and similar flavors to the nose. It ends crisp and sweet and while the finish is not very long it’s hard not to take another sip.
There’s really nothing complex about this wine but it’s a well made, satisfying drink for the sweet wine lovers especially at this low price. It should pair well with desserts and spicy foods or it’s also quite nice as an aperitif.
