Moscato Gold 2021
Made with hand selected parcels of fruit; Moscato Gold is our finest expression of the Moscato style. The silky texture and orange blossom character derived from Orange Muscat grapes is perfectly complemented by the fresh musk flavours of Muscat Gordo Blanco.
The Moscato Gold is deliberately more intense in bubbles than the Moscato giving great balance to the natural grape sweetness. The wine is made to be drunk immediately while young and fresh.

Try it with a spicy Asian infused broth with lemon grass and coriander or why not have it with a lime and ginger panna cotta for a light dessert option.
Growing Conditions: Muscat of Alexandria is part of the exotic Muscat family. The Romans are believed to have given the grape its name as they found its distinctive aroma akin to that of musk, and hence called it Moscato – smelling of musk. Viticulture experts have identified at least 200 different members of the Muscat family and several of these different clones have been cultivated in Australia for as long as grapes have been grown here. Australian winemakers have a fondness for the variety. It produces delicious, plump, juicy grapes and, depending on which clone is cultivated, when it is harvested and how it is handled, it can produce a wide range of wine styles. If harvested early, it produces delicate, perfumed, crisp, dry white table wines but if left to hang on the vines several weeks longer it produces rich flavoursome dessert wines.
Winemaker: Katherine Brown
