Brilliant Disguise Moscato, delicately sweet with a gentle spritz
Italian in style and made from White Frontignac grapes, this is a low alcohol, slightly spritzy wine with sweet, lush, fruity flavours. Fire up the barbie, make a nice seafood salad and sit back; you'll be reaching for the second bottle in no time!

Australia's love of the meringue mostly revolves around the pav, though the softer rolled style is fast becoming a fashion accessory at many dinners. Here the strawberries and kiwis add more than just colour, with their light acidity giving some bite to the overall sweetness.
Same goes for moscato, which is perfect here as a light and refreshing, slightly spritzy sweet wine partner. Two Hands have been one of the pioneers of the style in Australia using Barossa Valley white frotignac. It's like crunching into a sweet apple and at 8 per cent alcohol won't go straight to your head on a hot day.

Perhaps the perfect summer wine. It's undeniably sweet, fizzy and fun (only 8% alcohol), but also food friendly. It's a pale number with musky notes and lashings of fresh, crisp green apple flavours and hints of bananas with a structure as lean as a catwalk model. Made from fruit grown on 30-50-year-old white frontignac vines in the Barossa Valley, it's a lovely drink for enjoying chilled. A refreshing pre-dinner tipple.

Winery Tasting Notes
Very pale with slight green hue
Fresh aromatics leap out of the glass full of fresh green apples, sherbet, lifted rosewater and exotic bath salts.
The entry is light with a fine bead, but the texture slowly builds with the creamy mousse. The wine is vibrant, showing strong floral flavours and fresh green apples, with an acid and sweetness roundabout that is balanced and focused giving great length and refreshment. It keeps you looking for the next glass!
