    March 24, 2013 - Overly sweet, sticky on the palate, heavy berry attack, so sparkling that it feels carbonated.

    February 5, 2012 - Deep, dark, peach color, almost as if there was skin contact with the grape; almost a bourbon-like shade of amber. Floral and strong honey aromas, with undertones of sweet peach jam and honeydew melon. Good acidity with moderate sweetness and relatively high effervescence, which helps to offset the sweetness. Orange, honeydew, and a mead-like character with a somewhat short finish.

    Not very memorable, though not bad at all.

    February 19, 2011 - Bottle cap. Color was typical Rosé. Quite effervescent. Medium sweet with loads of peaches and citrus especially oranges. Fresh but with abrupt finish. Quite an enjoyable crowd pleaser as any Moscato typically is. Not an intellectual wine.

    January 20, 2011 - Color is clear, medium- and pink.

    The nose is clean, medium and youthful, very floral in its orientation.

    Palate is medium sweetness, medium acidity, it does feel like it has a touch of tannin, so skin contact?, I don't sense the alc. The flavor intensity is medium -, length is short. Flavors of honey and floral. Touches of tea notes.

    Overall its good quality, more fun at $10 than $14.

    August 23, 2010 - 6/10 - Don't expect much of a wine here. Tastes more like sparkling ribena with chrysanthemum and a dash of alcohol. Not much finish or acidity. Makes for a decent and pleasant enough apertif or a pool side drink on a nice summer day. But again, this tastes closer to soft drink than wine.

    S$18 for a half-bottle at Villa de Parma restaurant.
