Wednesday night, I attended a delightful, unique, white wine tasting at the Art of Wine in Sedona, AZ. My two favorites were the Anselmi, Garganega 2015, from Veneto, Italy and the Juan Gil Moscatel 2015, from Jumilla, Spain. I'm just reviewing the Juan Gil today. The Juan Gil was an exquisite tropical blend with a gorgeous mouth. This dry white wine was well balanced with a nice long finish. Moscatel is the Spanish name for Muscat (the French name). Wines from this varietal range from dry to extremely sweet in fortified wines. Not to be confused with Muscadet, which is a totally different white varietal from Northern France. The price ranges from around $9 per bottle to $15. I’d definitely recommend it for our upcoming summer months.
