Moscato Mania?When at my local liquor store, I enjoy browsing the aisles - hoping to find something different. I did just that on my last trip. I came upon a variety that I have had before (moscato - from the muscat grape). What intrigued me was the origin of this particular wine - from of all places, Romania! The price was right too - under $5 (U.S.).
I can only imagine what most people are saying - "Cheap Romanian wine? What are you thinking?" I was dubious too, but figured I would try it anyway. After all, I would not be out that much if it was horrible.
While the wine aficionados will likely not give this an International gold medal, it turned out to be a perfectly fine everyday wine. It was slightly sweet (but not overly so) with very fruity flavors. The name of the wine was Dreambird Moscato.
I'm not saying this will be to everybody's liking. If you like to experiment with different wines though, and are open-minded enough not to be put off by the screw cap and cheap price, I recommend giving it a try.
