DetailsMaster Vintner™ Moscato makes one gallon of soft, luscious wine, with a rounded finish of tropical and stone fruit that begs for another sip.
Fresh and vibrant, this white wine has aromas of dried fruit, pineapple, white grape, and lychee — it's a virtual fruit salad in a glass!
The fruit in this wine begs to be complemented and challenged. Pairing with melon wrapped in prosciutto works on two levels: the melon showcases the acidity behind the lush fruit, and the sweetly savory prosciutto highlights the perfumed fruity sweet notes. Scallops sautéed in butter do the same, playing on the themes of acid and fruit, while peach slices, slid into individual glasses, topped with Muscat and allowed to chilled for an hour are a fabulous treat, especially with Danish blue cheese on the side.
Serve quite cool (45-50F) for a refreshing and zesty experience, or use as a base for white Sangria for a real crowd pleaser.
Yield: 1 Gallon (approximately 5 wine bottles)

3.7 / 5.03 ReviewsWife Enjoyed ItI bought this for my wife because she isn't the biggest fan of beer. The kit was very easy if you had the equipment. Once it was complete I compared my bottles to the $15 ones she normally purchased at the store. I thought it was very close. There is a nice fruity and sweetness taste to the final product. I will be purchasing again.
I ended up with 4.5 bottles.January 10, 2017Purchased

Browse 4 questions Browse 4 questions and 15 answersHow many bottles does it make?BEST ANSWER: I got 5- 750ml ,1 375 ml and a partial bottle I refer to as a taster bottle.
However this was the first time owing a batch with oak and even the smallest movement disturbed the sediment and then I needed to wait a couple days for it to settle. So.. could have been 6-7 bottles at 750 ml if not for that. It was extremely delicious after aging 6 months. I would remake but mak a full 6 gallon batch. This was perfect to decide if it was something I liked.I recently completed a batch of this recipe. The starting specific gravity was 1.100, which was 0.005 above the 1.080-1.095 target. Being new at this and not knowing how to change that, I proceeded without doing anything about it. The ending specific gravity was 0.994. (1.100-0.994)/0.776 gives an alcohol by volume of about 13.66%, which is much higher than I would expect a Moscoto to be. I'm just wondering: is that is normal for this recipe or is there something else I should have done, beyond the information included in the instructions, to change that?BEST ANSWER: That seems pretty normal for all of the kit wines I have ever purchased from Master Vintner. If your specific gravity is down at 0.994 that is a good thing because it means you have fermented out the majority of the sugars. This is way better than having the wine stop short. If you fancy your moscato a little sweeter, you need add potassium sorbate to "kill" the yeast, and then you can use a solution of table sugar or glucose to adjust the sweetness (and alcohol content) to taste. I've only adjusted a couple of wines, but I generally add a very concentrated sugar solution in small amounts until I get close to what I want it to taste like (use a wine thief) and then let it sit for a week or so and taste again.Is this very sweet?BEST ANSWER: It has some mild sweetness but has prominent fruit flavor in a crisp finish. This makes for a more complex and flavorful wine that develops great flavor over time. It is not as sweet as many commercial moscatos which lack balance.What ingredients are needed for this kit to make the wineBEST ANSWER: Sherrie,
