2016 Pinocchio Moscato
We, at Crittenden Estate, have long been fans of the wonderful Italian Mos-cato wines. They are intriguing for their beguiling nose of lychees and gin-ger, the delicious frizzante (fizz) they carry and the refreshing spine of acidity that cuts through the sweetness of the unfermented grape sugar. We especially like the fact that the alcohol is quite low! This, our eleventh attempt, seems quite credible, a fair copy one could say. It can be enjoyed with dessert, a number of cheeses, particularly dolce latte and piccante Gorgonzola as well as pastries and brioche.
