DetailsThis fresh and vibrant white wine is a true crowd pleaser, showing the pronounced sweet floral aroma that makes Muscat so easy to love. Light-bodied, the upfront character of the wine is best described as 'grapey', with aromas of passion fruit, pineapple, elderflowers, rose petals, dried fruit, tropical and stone fruit along with lychee--Muscat is a fruit salad in a glass!
Versatile in the extreme, Muscat pairs wonderfully with rich seafood like sweet scallops, prawns, or lobster salad, and loves creamy, salty cheese like Cambozola or Danish Blue, but it's also perfect for slow, glorious sipping on a balmy patio in the afternoon.

4.5 / 5.04 ReviewsMoscato ... Off-dry?This one turned out a little dry for my liking. I did add a little extra sweetener before bottling, but this is definitely still quite dry for a traditional Moscato. Nice overall flavorOctober 8, 2015Just bottled the wine today(03/2). Nice aroma and flavor. With age it will get even better. I made this so I have some Muscat on hand for some of my sauces that I make with wines. Not real sweet but just right for baked scallops in a white wine sauce.March 2, 2017Great WineThis kit turned out great. It turned out a little sweet but I added some wine conditioner to sweeten it up to our liking. All our friends like it also. I don't think it will get to age very long.
Great choice.May 17, 2018Purchased

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 2 answersYour answer was appreciated but it pointed out I needed to ask the question a different way . . .
Exactly how would I know which kit to buy from any/all of the kits you offer if I don't know EXACTLY what's included in a kit. For example, I want to only buy kits that include crushed or dehydrated grapes. Since you say the instructions are generic to all kits in that grouping please tell me how I would know which kit to buy if kit price isn't one of my criteria but, for example grapes are.BEST ANSWER: Sadly this information is not public knowledge, may be a matter of keeping a recipe more or less secret. The only way I can think of for sure would be to contact the kit producer via email or phone and asking about a specific kit. I have made most, and if you ask us about specific kits, I can let you know if I know or not. The California Muscat, and all whites I can think of, do not include grape skins. A big bodied red, like zin or shiraz, should always have grape skins but they only include them if they are needed to produce the target wine. I would advise not having the inclusion of grape skins as a necessity, instead read the description and choose wines that sounds good to you. They come guaranteed to produce awesome wine that you will be proud to serve, otherwise, save the ID codes on the boxes, and if they are not, the guarantee allows us to help out if we get those codes. CheersI am confused over the instructions found in the link.
When I reviewed the Additives that the Instructions say are included in this kit under the heading "Also In Kit" it lists, "Wine Yeast, Oak (optional); GenuWine Grape Skins (optional); Elderflowers (optional), Suss Reserve (optional); Sweetening or Finishing Blend (optional) and Dehydrated Fruit (optional).
Are all those additives going to be in the kit's box to be used at my option, or does the word "optional" mean only some or even none are going to be included in the kit's box.BEST ANSWER: The optional designation denotes that some of the kits will have the aforementioned items and some will not. RJS uses the same instruction sheet for many of their kits.
