SWEET VS. DRY wine

Updated: Feb 29, 2020

If you watched the "Sweet vs. Dry" video on my youtube channel (Michael Geary), and want to know more about the wines I chose, look below.


If you haven't watched the video yet, watch it here first, then come back. I go over the key differences between a sweet and dry wine.


Here is the sweet (like liquid candy) wine:



Moscato d'Asti Cascinetta 2017


Winery: Vietti

From: Barolo, Italy

Grape: Moscato Bianco

Vintage (Year): 2017

Ratings: 92 points - Vinous

Price: $14-17

Winemaker's Notes: Pale sunshine yellow color and slight frizzante, this Moscato d’Asti has intense aromas of peaches, rose petals and ginger. On the palate, it is delicately sweet and sparkling with balanced acidity, good complexity and a finish of fresh apricots.


Great as an aperitif, or a perfect accompaniment to Pan-Asian cuisine and lobster as well as pastry, fruit-based and creamy desserts and blue cheeses.


Here is the dry wine:



Bourgogne Chardonnay 2016

Winery: Paul Pernot

From: Bourgogne (Burgundy), France

Grape: Chardonnay

Vintage (Year): 2016

Ratings: 88 points - Wine Searcher

Price: $23-28

Winemaker's Notes: Clean, melon and citrus fruit with snappy young acidity and a touch of softening oak round out this lovely little wine. It's stylistically very pure and expressive of fruit.
