Peach Cobbler & Sparkling Moscato
Summer may be winding down, but this Central California heat doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Thankfully, the fresh, sweet flavors of summer also get to stick around! There is nothing quite like summertime fruit. Fresh berries, juicy watermelon, and perfectly ripe peaches are among some of nature’s finest offerings. And while fresh fruit is satisfying as-is on a summer afternoon, there’s no harm in making it even more divine. Best way to do this? One word: cobbler.
This classic peach cobbler hits every single note perfectly. It’s warm, sweet, full of texture, and brimming with flavor. And while it pairs perfectly with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it’s also a match made in heaven with our Weibel Sparkling Moscato. The bubbles of this Moscato cut through the richness of the cobbler and ice cream, while the flavor profile is just sweet enough to complement the dish without being overbearingly sweet. The best part? If you find you accidentally (read: intentionally) over scooped your ice cream and have some leftover in your bowl, you can pour the Moscato over it for a second delicious treat!
