“I created this Moscato in the same manner as the genuine Piedmontese Moscato that I grew to appreciate whilst working in Italy. Clearly I took some liberties given the eye catching pink fleshy blush! I sourced the best Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains grapes I could find, harvested at the first sign of that distinctive floral musky punch. The fruit was handled as gently as possible aswas the juice in order to retain as much aromatic fruit character as possible. Cold fermentation in pressure tank further enhanced these unique volatile characters with the ferment arrested at the traditional 5.5% v/v alcohol (permitted by law for traditional Moscato D’Asti). Being a tank ferment the spritz in the bottle is that created from the ferment in turn giving distinct mouth feel and texture. I am sure it will be a very popular little gem, especially come summer time. Salute!”

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale translucent pink with a corresponding vivid hue.
Fresh, floral aromatic notes comprising scents of exotic musk and lemon blossom with a hint of Turkish delight.
Vibrant and delightfully delicate palate of wild strawberry, rosewater come Turkish delight immersed in a luscious mouth coating, foamy, meringue like mousse. An attractive line of lime sherbet acidity entwined through the palate perfectly balances the lavish sweetness whilst effortlessly extending into the supple ruby grapefruit finish.
Perfect aperitif, especially in summer and ideal for brunch. Also well suited to fresh fruit, a pavlova with fresh strawberries and cream or more adventurously Zabaglione with grilled stonefruit.
