Barefoot Moscato Wine Review

Share this review:

A product of Argentina, Barefoot Moscato is a white wine and has an alcohol content of 9%.  Moscato is typically a sweet wine and is often served as part of the dessert course of a meal.

From the bottle:  “Barefoot Moscato is a sweet wine with delicious mouth watering flavors of juicy peach and apricot.  Hints of lemon and orange citrus complement a crisp, refreshing finish.  Barefoot Moscato is perfect with spicy Asian cuisine, light desserts, fresh fruit and mild cheeses.”

Barefoot Moscato Review

To start, the cork was soft and came out easily.  The wine presented a mostly clear and clean appearance with mild color typical of a Moscato.  Though not a sparkling wine, it was a little bit bubbly in the glass.

barefoot moscatonA clean crisp aroma of light pear was immediately noticed and was pleasant.  On the palate, the Barefoot Moscato was sweet and crisp.  The sweetness did not overpower the enjoyable tastes of lemon and orange citrus, as promised from the bottle.

The mouthfeel had a texture of satiny smoothness with a finish that landed mostly in the cheeks and somewhat less on the tongue.  The finish was short and delicate.

Overall, this Moscato performed perfectly and would easily pair with the foods mentioned above.  On their website they also mention that this wine would be a good compliment to coconut cream pie.  Nowadays, many restaurants serve a cheese plate as a dessert.  Barefoot Moscato came to mind as the perfect compliment to that.

One of the things that Barefoot Wine and Bubbly mentions on the bottle is that they “support the efforts of organizations that help keep America’s beaches barefoot friendly”.  With a price of roughly $7.00 a bottle this wine is not only a good value, but also a good corporate citizen.  They appear to embody the spirit of their name.  Recommend!

If you’re looking for a white wine that is not sweet, consider Robert Mondavi Fume Blanc.  However, keep in mind Fume Blanc is not a dessert wine like Barefoot Moscato.

    OMD, Moscato is one of my favorite grapes. So I’m sure I will like this wine and the prices is also great. I do like dessert wines, but as I’ve got older I seem to find some of them very sickly sweet. If I ever this I will in not doubt buy it. Thanks.

    we enjoy Barefoot Moscato and Riesling a lot. We would recommend both. The question we have is, “are there any sulfates in these wines?

    Hi there! Good question. I don’t know, so I sent an email to Barefoot to find out via their Contact page on their site. They said they’d get back to me within two business days. When I hear back I’ll post their reply here

    Cheers!

  1. […] I write an annual Barefoot review because hardly anyone one else does; the Winestream Media can’t be bothered reviewing wines that people actually drink. Not surprisingly, the Barefoot post is always among the most popular on the blog, with Barefoot reviews coming in at No. 2 and No. 4 in 2012’s top 10. This year, it was heartening to see others taking up the cause, and my annual Google search found a handful of other recent reviews. How can one not appreciate a blog called Honest Wine Reviews? […]
