Cassini Cellars 2010 Moscato - 90pts

Cassini Cellars 2010 Moscato (Golden Mile Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $24 (375ml)
Alcohol: 19.6%
Production: 110 cases
Date Tasted: September 3rd, 2012

Tasting Notes: The success of this dessert wine is in its ability to stay rather fresh and relatively light in the mouth despite the nearly 20% alcohol and substantial residual sugar - a tall order. This charming, honeydew and spicy peach flavoured wine opens with a lovely nose of pecans, tangerines and violets and will compliment your favourite nutty pie or crème brûlée rather than compete with it. Ready to be enjoyed now and though it will hold for many years I'd recommend early consumption while the wine is still youthful and fresh with well-balanced acidity. Drink 2012-2014+.
