Moscato Giallo has to be the "if you know, you know" grape of the late 2010s and early 2020s. So often it is associated with sweet wine, and it can be difficult to hand sell because of the trauma that so many ordinary "Moscato" wines have inflicted on the palates of many. When we sell wine in the shop, we pretty much conduct a mini-interview with people - asking them questions about what their occasion or intended consumption of a drink is about, and we then guide our customers towards what we think will fit best. So many times we have come to the conclusion that a Moscato Giallo wine was appropriate for the time, and suggested it only to have people reply "oh I don't like sweet wine!" Friends, the modern MG is anything but sweet!
14 days on skins then pressed gently to barrel for a small sleep, lots of lees contact and full malolactic fermentation. It pours a golden bronze colour and smells incredible; big aromas of lychee, musk stick, melon, pineapple, grapefruit. The palate is medium bodied, plush in texture and so incredibly soft. Heaps of grapefruit, and melon up front, then a little stonefruit, spice, musky slightly grippy, DRY finish. Delightful.
