The best part about summer: after putting my toddler to bed, making my way outside in the cool breeze and pouring a glass of chilled white wine. Just reminiscing about that feeling while it is pouring outside makes me happy!
I received a bottle of Flip Flop Moscato to review and I am sad to say that I did not get to review it myself. Here is what happened: My cousin came over to watch my daughter for a little while. Before she left, I told her to pick out a wine or two and take it home with her. I have a fully loaded wine rack and I love to send people off with a bottle of something special. I wasn’t really paying attention to what she took – but I found out the next day when she called me up and said: “Where did you get that bottle of Moscato? It was the best white I have ever tasted and I WANT MORE!” I panicked. I didn’t want to make her feel bad that she took “my work” home with her – but it was too late. So instead of pouting over lost wine, I asked her to describe the flavors to me. She is, after all, is the one who introduced me to white wine. To be totally honest, I had never even heard of Moscato before Flip Flop contacted me telling me there was a bottle on the way!
She told me that it was the equivalent of a white Sangria. It did not leave a bitter after taste in your mouth, but rather a floral, fruity taste. Her serving suggestion was in a pitcher full of fresh fruit at the next family function. It seems that each time I share a Flip Flop wine, I get nothing but great reviews back from everyone!
I’m a little bummed that I did not get to try my first Moscato this time around, but I will be on the lookout for this summer wine! You can connect with Flip Flop wines on Facebook to stay updated on their latest news.
