It is probably best suited to a younger audience and will lend a touch of elegance to any occasion. It is difficult to find a that does not speak highly of this delightful wine.

Appearance

Mamamango’s bottle demands attention. It is a stylish black, with gold writing and a yellow mango image. Upon opening, you will see the inviting bubbles breaking through the cloudy yellow-orange-colored wine. Don’t be surprised to see a little mango sediment at the bottom of your glass. This effect is a result of the addition of the natural, fresh mango pulp that is added to the Moscato wine.

Aroma

There is no doubt that mangoes are an ingredient in this wine. That is the main aroma that it brings to its mid-intensity nose. It is possible to distinguish a hint of orange zest, white flowers, and other tropical fruits such as pineapple.

Taste

Mango is the predominant note that carries through to the palate. You may experience a tangy prickle on the tip of your tongue as you taste, but it is not too sweet. This sparkling Moscato is pleasantly well-balanced and follows through with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

The wine has a fruity mango finish that some reviews say does not really taste like wine. It will leave the palate clean and refreshed. This is to be expected from a Moscato Fruit Blend wine.
