Easy drinking, lower-in-alcohol, and very food-friendly, these four moscatos are a great (re)introduction to the style.
Hunter Valley, New South Wales
Blush rhubarb in colour with lifted aromas of floral rose petals, turkish delight and watermelon. A crisp citrus acid line takes you through to a refreshingly dry finish.
Rutherglen, North East Victoria
Made from Rutherglen brown muscat (muscat à petit grains rouge), this wine is pale pink in colour with lifted floral muscat aromatics. A bouquet of turkish delight and sherbet characters coupled with fresh spritz.
Pale pink in colour with aromas of rose petal, musk stick and grapes. The rose petal and musk stick carry through to the palate, resulting in a wine that’s fresh and lively, and sweet but not cloying. Made from muscat á petit grains rouge.
King Valley, Victoria
Lightly sparkling and low in alcohol. Featuring bright watermelon and berry notes, this wine starts sweet and finishes dry. A perfectly balanced and refreshing drink on its own or for something different add fresh ginger, mint and lime, it's a real crowd pleaser.
