Astoria Sparkling Moscato Lounge wine review by Billy
Palate: sweet orange flavors in the mouth and a mouth-coating honeydew sweetness. The bubbles are soft and gentle but provide a nice counterpoint to the sweetness and prevent the wine from becoming cloying.
Finish: gentle orange blossom finish.
Overall: Lazy bubbles meander to the top of the glass. This Italian sparkling wine is a blend of Prosecco and Moscato grapes. I paid about $10 for this at a local wine store. It is a nice sweet wine that is great in the summer and with spicy meals.
