Moscato 2017 (500ml)

Tasting Notes

Brilliant pale pink.  A showcase of the lifted floral aromatics that Muscat produces, rosewater and floral notes with confected raspberry & Turkish delight.. The palate is true to the bouquet with raspberry & Turkish delight characters all prominent. Gentle fresh spritz adds texture to the mid palate, before finishing with balanced sweetness and acidity which is clean and round.

Winemaking

The fruit was picked in the cool of the early morning. Only the free run juice was collected and after cold settling fermentation was started using an aromatic yeast strain. The ferment was tasted twice daily and when the correct balance between alcohol and natural sugar was obtained the ferment was stopped, maintaining the natural sweetness and spritz.

Cellaring

This wine is best enjoyed whilst young and fresh and will not benefit from further long term cellaring. Ideal for pre or post dinner drinks, the perfect ‘daytime wine’, or even with a lazy Sunday brunch!

"This appealing wine shows the versatility of our famous Rutherglen Muscat grapes." - Colin Campbell
