Interestingly enough, Moscato isn't a grape varietal. Moscato is made from the Muscat grape. There are a few clones of this grape but they all produce a lovely wine with aromatics of white peach and orange blossom with a sweetness on the palate. Moscato also comes in a variety of styles - still to sparkling, sweet to dry. You can find Moscato across the globe. Made famous by the Italians, Moscato has started to be produced by Californians, Canadians, Chileans and Australians. The Schild family have been growing Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains grapes in the Barossa Valley for over 60 years. Previously used primarily for the production of both fortified and off dry wine styles, we have been inspired by our sunny climate and the deliciously refreshing Moscato wines of Italy to try a hand at one ourselves. The Angus Brae vineyard is grown on clay and loam soils, in the subregion of Lyndoch. Grapes are harvested in early February. Serve chilled between 7-9C.
Clear, bright with green tinges and a slight spritz.
Delicate, but intense perfume of Elderflower and white floral notes along with a waft of freshly made Turkish Delight.
A pretty, but purposeful mouthfeel with some real balance between texture and freshness. Those familiar flavours of elderflowers and white florals are now accompanied by subtle hints of lemon/lime pith and a faint touch of quinine around the edges. These are followed by a fresh long finish working seamlessly behind to provide some unity and a wholly satisfying after taste.
Easily paired with dessert, the trick is to ensure dessert isn't sweeter than the wine. Spicy foods are always up for the challenge.
