California Moscato was, like many Muscats, low in alcohol (just 8 percent ABV) and a bit sweet yet balanced by a zesty acid character. It smelled of melon and orange juice, and its pleasant fruit taste was notably of pineapple, tangerine, apricot, and, well, grapes.
Varietal: Moscato Bianco
California produces the majority of wine made in the United States. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel and Pinot Noir dominate the wine production in California, but many other varietials thrive in the California climate. Many fine wines are produced in California using Mediterranean grapes.
