Tasting Notes – 2010 Martin Weyrich Moscato Allegro

I have to admit, I didn’t want to like this wine. I am not a big fan of the idea of feeding Millennials slightly sweet wine as a ‘transition wine. Nor am I a fan of the current wave of Muscat as ‘the next big thing’ – repeatedly this leads to lower q

uality wine, in a varietal that will be easy to abuse. This is

not an industry to trend chase.

BUT I actually see a scrap of validity of the transition wine

philosophy with this Moscato, and frankly its a decently made wine. They also ‘get’ marketing, and have a well designed website.

Review: Martin Weyrich 2010 Moscato Allegro

What distinguishes this wine is the acidity and low alcohol. Cold slower fermentation helps add nice aromatics.

To The Eye: Medium yellow straw, clear except for tiny hints of bubbles

On The Nose: Honeysuckle, ripe melon, ripe pear.

In The Mouth: Lush, and just slightly effervescent. The acidity combines with the relatively high RS (10%) for a well done combination that never comes across as sugary or cloying.
Whether it was luck or design, the result is solid nonetheless.
Do NOT drink overchilled, you will lose the subtleties.

Recommendation: At $12 and 7.5% alcohol, its a great aperitif or would go very well with spicy food. If you see viagra en gel a bottle, grab it for your next picnic or Thai dinner.

Available at various retail as well as online.

88 Points. Media Sample.
