Pineapples and melons are the primary fruit flavors of this Muscat wine, but what dominates the palate is sweetness. It's much sweeter than other comparable Muscat wines, like the Alice White 2007 Lexia, and has in fact been described as 'liquid candy.' There's really no complexity to this Muscat at all. If you or someone you know likes very sweet wines, you'll do well with the Sutter Home Moscato.
Like other muscat wines the Alice White Lexia is very sweet but it is also very flavorful. It tastes strongly of mangos with some melons. It has a slightly tart finish, but I think it would be better if it were a little more acidic so that it would have a crisper finish. Alice White's Lexia is made from Muscat grapes in South Eastern Australia and is one of Alice White's most recent lines of wine. The Muscat grape appears to do quite well in the climate of South Eastern Australia, allowing Alice White to produce an unusually good desert wine.
When it comes to taste, the more prominent flavor in the thin-bodied Colombelle Gascogne Blanc has to be grapefruit, resulting in an acidic and biting taste that could easily be unpleasant to some wine drinkers. It's dry and quite tart but clean with a reasonable length; however, you'll really have to decide what you think about the grapefruit flavor - for some people it should be a refreshing change of pace, but others will be turned away with one sip.
The taste of the Château Bonnet Blanc is a combination of citrus fruits like lime and grapefruit with mild herbs. The addition of the herbal notes certainly reduces the strong citrus flavors which can characterize some white wines. Relatively dry with a medium body, it has a marked level of acidity and isn't too sweet. Overall it's fairly well balanced, as has been the case with previous vintages of this blended white wine.
A refreshing, medium-dry Chardonnay, the 2007 Vintner's Reserve has apple and pear flavors in a round, balanced feel. It finishes relatively quickly and cleanly but a smooth, buttery sensation. It's not at all grassy like some Chardonnays but it is more acidic that a 2006 vintage we tried at the same time — then again, maybe the 2006 has simply mellowed after an extra year. I you prefer a less acidic Chardonnay, you might want to let the bottle sit for a few months.
