Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to introduce you to my new favorite little wine. I have to thank my friend Mendi for introducing me to this one. She had a glass of this at a restaurant a while back and asked me if I knew where she could get it.
I happened to know that our local grocer carries the Tisdale label, but not the Moscato; only the standard four varietals. But, being the shameless person that I am, I went straight to the guy who does their ordering and asked if he could get us some. (And by “some” I mean a case of it for us to share.)
I admit, when she first mentioned it to me, I was a little hesitant because I knew that the other Tisdale wines retailed for about $3.49 a bottle. Now, you won’t find me complaining about a cheap bottle of wine, but when you go below the $5 mark, you just never know what you’re getting into.In this case, I was very pleasantly surprised. I’m not going to try and blow smoke and tell you this is a fantastic wine and to rush out to your local liquor store and demand that they carry it. But it IS a wine that will be taking up permanent residence in my wine rack....if I can manage to keep from drinking it, that is.
The Tisdale Moscato is a very light white wine, definitely on the sweet side, but not sickeningly sweet like so many I have come across. It is refreshing and clean enough that it makes a great go-to wine for every day drinking and pairs well with just about anything on the grill, making it a great summer choice. Crisp and citrusy, it is a winner in my book, and at under $4 a bottle, a can’t-miss pick!
You can learn more about the Tisdale wines on their website.
