The muscat grape is renowned for its versatility, being capable of producing a vast array of wine styles around the world – most of them sweet. We have chosen a style that is popular in the northern regions of Italy; one that produces a light, semi-sweet, beautifully aromatic, gently frizzante wine.
The 2014 Moscato is styled on a famous wine from north west Italy.
The fruit was hand harvested at low Baume levels – It was crushed, pressed, cold settled and the clear juice separated from the solids by racking. The juice was fermented at cool temperatures for a short time only in stainless steel to retain semi-sweetness. The wine was then stabilized and clarified prior to bottling. The wine was bottled in December 2014.
Moscato’s unique grapy/faint kiwi fruit and white peach nose is quite intense. The palate – pure fresh grape - is light and alive – not quite as sweet as its Italian equivalent, but the flavours are long and clean, with a liveliness stemming from its crisp acidity that is deliciously thirst quenching.
This wine style is best served quite cold (10 degrees C) as an aperitivo to dinner guests on arrival with spuntini (for example, marinated olives, prosciutto and grissini or chicken livers on toast). Moscato can also hit the right spot as a palate-cleanser after a hard day at the office.
