ABOUT MOSCATO FROM THE VALLE CENTRAL

Moscato wines from the Valle Central wine region in Chile are celebrated for their vibrant and aromatic qualities. Produced predominantly from the Muscat grape, these wines are known for their pronounced floral aromas, often reminiscent of orange blossom and honeysuckle, accompanied by tropical fruit notes such as peach, apricot, and lychee. In Valle Central, Muscat thrives in the warm, sunny climate, which enhances the grape’s natural sweetness and acidity, resulting in wines that are typically off-dry to sweet. Moscato wines from Valle Central are versatile and enjoyable on their own as a refreshing aperitif or paired with a variety of dishes, including spicy Asian cuisine, fresh fruit salads, or light desserts like fruit tarts or lemon sorbet. Their lively and fruity character makes them a popular choice among wine enthusiasts seeking a delightful and approachable wine experience.

  2. Fresh Fruit Salad: The wine’s bright acidity and tropical fruit notes pair beautifully with a fresh fruit salad, enhancing the flavors of fruits like strawberries, mangoes, and pineapple.
     

  3. Soft Cheeses: Creamy, mild cheeses such as Brie or Camembert contrast nicely with the wine’s sweetness and enhance its fruity aromas, providing a delightful combination of flavors and textures.
