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'?

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!

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!
