Butter Poached Lobster & Warm Tomato Salad
Traditionally, tomatoes are difficult to pair with a variety of wines because they are high in acidity. But, this pairing is surprisingly delightful due to the way the peach flavors in Electra Moscato compliment the combination of flavors in the dish. The supple yet delicate sweetness of the butter poached lobsters balance out the acidity levels in the warm tomatoes and are amplified by the savory hints of garlic. Add a nice cold glass of the perfectly balanced Electra Moscato and the delicate sweetness of lobster balances well with the high acidity of the tomatoes and savoriness of the basil and garlic.

The spritzy bubbles in Electra Moscato cut through the fibrous and slightly bitter kale while complimenting the satisfying savoriness of the eggs. This combination makes an interesting contrast to the bright apricot flavors and balanced acidity in Electra Moscato. GET THE RECIPE HERE
What makes Electra a different Moscato?
Compared to other Moscatos, Electra is more aromatic, crisp and refreshing. Whereas most Moscatos are made from Muscat of Alexandria, Electra is over 75% Orange Muscat and the balance is Muscat Canelli. These varieties are more difficult to grow and have smaller yields, but their aromas and flavors are more refined.
To make Electra, the free run juice is fermented for more than a month at low temperature after which it is chilled, sterile filtered, and bottled. This process preserves its delicate flavors and a slight fizz. BUY IT HERE.
