WNE - Torres Moscato Oro

If you're looking for a dessert wine to pair up with a mild blue cheese, fruit tart, or winter pudding give the Torres Moscatel Oro a try. This non-vintage "vino dulce natural" or "vin doux naturel" is blend of two Muscat varietals Moscatel de Grano Menudo (Muscat de Frontignac) and Moscatel de Alejandria (Muscat de Alexandria).
