Just Fine Wine and Winexpert are happy to announce the return of World Vineyard Pink Moscato from California! Light and refreshing on the palate with flavours of fresh strawberry, raspberry & cherry. World Vineyard Pink Moscato pairs great with fruit kabobs, spicy dishes, chinese takeout and sweet desserts.

Not familiar with Moscato? This wine is typically sweet, lower in alcohol than most other varietals, and can be found in sparkling, still, and dessert styles. It is made from the grapes of the Muscat family, which includes over 200 varieties and can be grown anywhere and everywhere around the world. Having a lower alcohol content and a refreshing flavour profile make Moscato more than just a dessert wine. In recent years Moscato has experienced incredible growth in popularity and has been the fastest growing wine style commercially. Moscato has proven to cut across all sorts of demographic lines and is especially popular among younger consumers. This is partly due to the wine carving a real niche within popular culture - particularly within the Hip Hop music scene where it has been referred to or endorsed by such musical acts such as Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Lil' Kim, Drake, Waka Flocka Flame and DJ Khaled. In addition, Real Housewife of Atlanta NeNe Leakes developed her own "Miss Moscato" line. Mixed with vodka, Moscato has also become a nightlife staple in clubs and hot spots around the globe.

Perfect for Summer (and any time for that matter), New World Vineyard California Pink Moscato is a 6 week kit that produces 23L (approximately thirty 750ml bottles) of finished wine and is priced at $140 On-Premise or $90 Kit-Only. Available for a limited time only at Just Fine Wine beginning in May. See what all the fuss is about, get yours today before they're gone!

California Pink Moscato Available Now For A Limited Time Only.

This wine is bursting with rich, intense flavours and aromas. The traditional Port character of warm, rounded cherries and plums is supported by a racy zing of bright raspberry. Perfumed and gently tart, with a luscious liquid chocolate rush in the middle of the palate it finishes with beguiling dark, bittersweet aromas of coffee, vanilla, and toast, all the way to a long, rich finish. Excellent on its own or with any dessert, or serve with toasted nuts or shortbread.

REGION: MURRAY DARLING, AUSTRALIA - The Murray Darling is a vast region that sees the meeting of Australia’s two rivers, The Murray and The Darling near the city of Mildura. One of the most significant grape growing regions in Australia, the Murray Darling is over 350 kilometres (220 miles) wide and produces about 20% of Australia’s crush. The combination of heat, irrigation and fertile soil produces grapes which create soft, generously flavoured wines.

WINE: The trio of grapes that make up this wine are as distinctive as the blend itself. The wonderfully floral Gewürztraminer headlines as Verdelho’s tropical fruit characteristics play off of Muscat’s infamous grapey flavour. The resulting wine has a perfumed nose with vibrant flavours of pear, grapefruit, lime and mineral and an off-dry finish which makes this wine refreshingly fun to drink.

Selection California Sauvignon Blanc Rose. Get Yours Today!

The STYLE:

Rosé wine has begun to come into its own in recent years and has become a serious style of wine unto itself. Rosés most often offer a lighter, brighter, sunnier take on your favourite red-wine grapes. This year's release is based on a white wine grape! Either way, rosés aren’t just for novice wine drinkers. Today’s rosés will please the palate of even the most discerning wine aficionado. Lip-smacking fruit and mouth-watering acidity, lightly chilled rosé wines are versatile and food-friendly.

Our SELECTION:

California Sauvignon Blanc Rosé

The Region:

Northern California
Grown in a classic Mediterranean climate featuring warm days and cool evenings, the region’s steady breezes provide the grapes with natural air conditioning throughout the growing season. This perfect climate produces wines with beautiful aromatics and refreshing natural acidity.

The Wine:

Pale salmon colour with lovely tropical notes of pineapple and white peach with raspberry and cherry. The wine is off-dry but the vibrant acidity balances it out. Full and juicy, a crisp and refreshing finish makes this a perfect sipping wine. BODY: MEDIUM   ALCOHOL: 11%   SWEETNESS: OFF-DRY

Food Pairing:

Rosé really does go with (almost) everything. This particular rosé has some residual sweetness making it a perfect partner for spicier fare. It’s also a great match for seafood, chicken and pork.
