Default moscato, cognac wine and ice wine recipes

i've never made wine before, but theres a first time for every thing!!! does any one have a moscato recipe??? my wife loves this wine, we're in germany right now and thats about all she drinks. me, i'm not much on wine, but i finally found one i like. it a cognac wine, i love it, it doesn't have the acidic throat burn like most wines. and also, i need an ice wine recipe. any help for your guy and gals would be greatly received!!!

Moscato is Italian wine made from Muscat grapes - grab a wine kit and have a go with a similar style product if you can't get the grapes and press them yourself! No idea what 'Cognac wine' or 'Ice wine' are though.....

Never heard about ice wine before. Is it sweet german dessert stuff that's commercially made? Also any clues on the 'Cognac wine'?

Cognac wine sound's like a sweet sherry to me, an aquired taste!

You've mentioned this throat burn thing with wine earlier in the thread. Is it you just don't like dry wines? For me personally drinking sweet wines often seems to leave a coating in my mouth that's just pure sugar and not a lot else!

Try a decent German DRY Riesling wine. It's a eye opener to the sweet rubbish those guys have been flogging to death in Britain for the last thirty years!

I can't (wont) drink anything other than dry, I've only ever had the throat burn from cheapo dries. (Under £3)

True - REALLY Cheap Dry wines (Especially White) are the worst. Even MORE TERRIBLE in Pub/Clubs/Bars by the glass.

I just hope justbrewit can find a decent bottle - If your still out there please go look in the German supermarkets when you get chance!
