Electra Moscato is a sweet white wine, bubbling with flavors of citrus, peach and melon, while aromas of honeysuckle refresh the senses. Electra is a frizzante Moscato d’Asti style picnic wine for drinking outside, in warm weather, chilled or over ice.
Compared to other moscatos, Electra Moscato is more aromatic, crisp and refreshing. Whereas most moscatos are made from Muscat of Alexandria, Electra is over 75% Orange Muscat and the balance is Muscat Canelli. These varieties are more difficult to grow and have smaller yields, but their aromas and flavors are more refined.
To make Electra Moscato, a combination of free run and pressed juice is fermented for more than a month at a low temperature, after which it is chilled, sterile filtered, and bottled. This process preserves its natural sweetness, lush ripe flavors and slight fizz.
Pair this sweet white wine with fresh fruit, salads, spicy Asian and Indian foods, burgers with sweet sauce, light desserts, blue skies and fresh air. And with only 4.5% alcohol, you can still play volleyball after the picnic.
Electra Moscato also makes sublime sangria and sorbets/slushies. To make sorbet/a slushy: pour into a covered container or sealable bag, freeze overnight, then spoon into chilled glassware.

Quite sweet and impressively concentrated, this light-bodied wine pours on flavors of lychee, pear nectar, peach nectar and orange blossoms that keep going and going through a lingering finish.
As you might expect Electra goes with summer fruits (strawberries, nectarines, peaches, melons), but I think the real essence of what this wine has to offer is pairing it with lunch or dinner entrees such as spring and summer salads, Quiche Lorraine, spicy Asian hors d’oeuvres, Pad Thai, and Indian foods. It is amazing with egg based dishes and salsa. Take it out for a night on the patio for star gazing, fresh air and light desserts… or mix it up in a cocktail.
