Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: a dry, full-bodied white from California


Published:

You’re more likely to find this style of wine in Northern Italy or Alsace — a dry Muscat. Straw coloured, the wine has a gorgeous perfume of freshly crushed grapes and cardamom with tangerine notes. Full-bodied and rich on the palate, it has the immediate suggestion of sweetness but finishes with a linger, dry flavour.

Food match: Asian dishes

 

Uvaggio Moscato Secco 2010, California. $19.95, Vintages #297515
