I'm not a wine aficionado...not a reviewer of note...and I bake and cook with wine more than I sip it. But, hey, when you crack open a bottle to cook with, you must have a glass to sip, right?
I'm a sweet and fruity white wine girl...and flipflop Moscato is a gloriously delightful sipping wine. It is not overly sweet (to me), like some dessert style wines. It is smooth and glides down your throat with a sultriness that calls for another sip....and another...and another...and all of the sudden you think "hey, my glass is empty, how did that happen?"
I love all of the flipflop wine labels - but must say the blue label, the color of the sea and sky on a gloriously sunny day, with sand dollars and little grass huts, compliments my coastal lifestyle to a perfect "t". I have adopted flipflop wines as my "house brand" - and Moscato reigns as the "queen of the island" in my little corner of the world.
Thanks to flipflop Wines...an affordable, outstandingly smooth and crisp all-at-the-same-time wine, it just tickles my flip flops silly. I'm heading to the beach now...for lunch with a friend and some time under an umbrella lounging. I'm taking a chilled bottle of Moscato, and I know it will make me a very happy girl!
Bon Appetit, Y'all!!!
