WineWeaver decided to join in the event by opening and enjoying a delicious Pink Moscato from Barefoot Wines. The Pink Moscato was refreshing and sweet, with soft fruity notes of raspberry and pomegranate.
Whilst, not a Moscato, but equally tasty was the Californian Merlot from Gallo Wines also in the shot. This had more robust flavours of darker fruits with a soft hint of vanilla. Both the sweeter Moscato and the stronger Merlot suited to being paired with the spice flavours in the Spicy Tomato Gnocchi in the pic.
A very enjoyable pairing indeed!
Happy #MoscatoDay 2014 One and All!
