Pennsylvania Wine Land Guide - 11

MERLOT
(mer-LOW); European
Merlot grapes can be found in the
SouthCentral and SouthEast regions of the
state and produce red wines that typically
have savory and earthy flavors with hints
of mushrooms. Climate impacts the wine's
flavor, bringing out jammy tastes with dark
fruit notes like black cherry or plum in warmer,
drier, or better-ripening years. A lighter to
medium Merlot pairs well with charcuterie or
meaty pasta dishes, while a heavier-bodied
alternative works better with a savory roast.

MOSCATO
(mohs-KAA-toh); European
Made from some of the oldest grapes in the
world, Moscato is a light-bodied, sweet white
wine with tropical fruit notes and floral aromas
that can be produced in a slightly fizzy or still
style. Often served as a dessert wine, Moscato
pairs nicely with fruit and vanilla-flavored
desserts, but can also provide a refreshing
companion to spicy cuisine.

NIAGARA
(nay-AE-gruh); Native
Niagara grapes are grown across PA,
primarily in the NorthWest region, and like
Concord grapes, mostly go into making juice.
When they end up in wine, the grapey flavors
come through with candied lemon and floral
jasmine aromas. Niagara is a medium-bodied
wine that provides a sweet complement
to briny shellfish, interesting cheeses, and
buttery pastries.

NOIRET
(nwahr-ET); Hybrid
This dark-skinned variety is a newer hybrid
and is grown in the NorthWest region of the
state. Cabernet-like in flavor, Noiret has a
black pepper aroma with hints of raspberry
and pairs well with pasta or beef dishes such
as pot roast.
