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
From: Barolo, Italy
Grape: Moscato Bianco
Vintage (Year): 2017
Ratings: 92 points - Vinous
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
Vintage (Year): 2016
Ratings: 88 points - Wine Searcher
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.
