I have been a Plus & Minus fan since I first began Dry but Wet back in 2020. Though their non-alcoholic wines can be a little on the light side, they have lead the way in the alcohol free wine space in Australia and set a high bar. Their wines always have texture and flavour thanks to the added grape skin extract. This sparkling Moscato is a new-ish and only available in a can, which is great when you really only want a glass or you want something that fits in your handbag.
To be honest, the idea of a Moscato scares the crap out of me. In my mind Moscato is a sickly sweet wine and something I avoided at all costs even when I was boozing. On the nose is doesn’t smell too sickly like I had imagined it would. Yes there is a sweetness, a little honeysuckle vibe but it’s quite lovely and definitely smells like a wine.
To taste, there is a sweetness there, possibly more than what I would choose to drink on the reg, but it’s balanced by a nice acidity so it is not overwhelming. Honeysuckle carries through and there are definitely some stone fruit characteristics there too. If you like a wine on the sweeter side, this is definitely worth trying, its got nice complexity and mouth feel. Plus it is really quite robust. Bubbles are a delicate fizz.
Buy Again?: Too sweet for me but a quality wine
