Orangina (which personally I like)
The Muscat grape (in French and English) and Moscato in Italian, is an ancient grape variety whose unique quality is that it produces wines that taste of grapes! It also produces wines that are often naturally spritzy and rather sweet, especially when produced by the Piedmont chilled arrested fermentation process that leaves much of the grapes’ sugar unconverted into alcohol, whilst still producing deep and exotic flavours and aromas.
This version from Tenuta Olim Bauda is no exception. It is packed with flavours of honey and oranges and has a lovely fizz. But it is not the best Moscato d’Asti we have tasted – it is a little too mono-tone, slightly artificial (more orangina than orange) and with its sweetness not quite balanced. I think you can do better – try for example the Alasia Moscato d’Asti or, from Spain, my favourite which is the Amatista Moscato Rosado.
Or this drink may well be available from your high street supplier – we’re sorry we cannot check them all but you might like to.
