Brown Brothers Moscato 2007

I wanted to try this for three main reasons:
  • it was recommended by Matt Skinner
  • it's only 5.5% alcohol
  • it's cheap
I don't worship Matt Skinner, but I figure any wine recommended by these types of guys is worth a try (I've actually tried others that Mr. Skinner has recommended and disliked them).
I picked last Sunday afternoon to try this, as I was planning to watch the final race of the 2008 Formula One season. My guest for the afternoon is also a big wine fan, and we also had to supervise our toddler sons, so something low alcohol was in order.

So was it any good? I liked it. It was light, tasty, and refreshing, with a bit of effervescence left over from the partial fermentation (similar to a Portuguese Vinho Verde). It's also sweet, so if you are one of those people who thinks "sweet = bad", then you may want to avoid it. It's perfect for lunchtime or afternoon, or just if you want something that's not going to go to your head.
