La Vida Bonita Moscatel 2016

Valencia DO

“Sometimes you find a wine that's so delicious you are sorely tempted to polish off the whole bottle … La Vida Bonita is one such wine!” says our Spain expert, Beth, of this low-alcohol, sparkling Moscatel (aka Moscato).

Crafted at the acclaimed Bodega La Viña, this gem sports well-integrated sweetness and mere 5 percent ABV, making it a perfect aperitif or afternoon sipper. Consider the location of La Viña’s sea-breeze-kissed vineyards – near Valencia, where stylish Spaniards sip Moscatel along the Mediterranean coast – and the wine’s name, La Vida Bonita (“the good life”) is on point.

Bodega La Viña is one of the most famous Moscatel producers in Spain, and award-winning winemaker Fernando Tarin Casado has decades of experience focusing exclusively on this grape variety, so you really are getting top quality in the glass. Pale lemon in color with a lively stream of bubbles, this fine fizz is as light as a feather, with leap-from-the-glass white grape and floral aromas and plenty of pleasing orchard fruit flavors.

A perfect selection for festive mingling and guest-greeting. Keep a well-chilled bottle near a spread of your favorite cheeses, charcuterie and more. You could also sip this with spicy Asian food, or even dessert – Beth recommends a bowl of strawberries and fresh cream.
