The top wines to pair with succulent summer melon, The Telegraph, Victoria Moore 19/08/2022:

2021 MOSCATO D'ASTI Azienda Agricola G.D. Vajra

2021 MOSCATO D’ASTI Azienda Agricola G.D. Vajra
拢16.95 | 拢15.95
Review: ‘If you鈥檙e just eating melon slices with a glass of wine as a pre-barbecue late-afternoon snack or as a pudding, then a Moscato d鈥橝sti is a great pick with perfumed melons such as galia or cantaloupe. This Italian sparkling white wine is low in alcohol and sweet without being cloying. The grape variety is, as the name suggests, moscato, which is pretty much the only grape whose wine actually tastes, well, grapey. […] a favourite is the peachy, herbal GD Vajra Moscato d鈥橝sti.’

You can snap up fine-wine quality for great prices 鈥 try the sappy, savoury 2019 Chinon Domaine Bernard Baudry. Ideal for this time of year.’
