Those of you who were of drinking age in the 1970s (and–ahem–for the record, I was not) may recall the stratospheric rise in popularity of Chardonnay. Like the band ABBA, Chardonnay had its heyday in the 70s and still enjoys a hard-core fan base.
But musical tastes evolve, and so, my friends, does wine.
Moscato, worshipped by some and reviled by many for the same reason–its sweetness–is topping the charts these days. Not a gathering goes by where I don’t encounter a gaggle of groupies who rave about Moscato’s naturally sweet character, versatility and intoxicating floral and fruit aromas.
Is Moscato the new Chardonnay, or to drag out my musical metaphor, is Moscato to Chardonnay what Air Supply was to ABBA?
Señorita Vino took this question to the experts. Read what they had to say–and learn some basic facts about Moscato–in my most recent article for Latina Magazine’s fab food and wine website, TheLatinKitchen.com.
And tell me, are you a Chardonnay kind of wine lover, or does Moscato rock your world?
