LA ZONA Moscato 2017
The deliciously light frizzante characters of Moscato continues to please the palates of Australian wine drinkers. Our expression of this grape which hails from Piedmont Italy, is lively on the palate with a tounge-teasing light spritz and delicate mid-level sweetness. Its low alcohol enables enjoyment over a glass or two alongside lighter dishes such as seafood, crisp salads and fruit desserts.
COLOUR: Pale straw to light gold.
AROMA: Intensely floral with honeysuckle, rose and jasmine.
PALATE: Burst of floral sweetness with honeysuckle and rose water. Palate supported with refreshing acidity with an assertive back palate spritz.
“Grapes where harvested at 12 Baume to give a perfect balance of sweetness, alcohol, and acidity with generous fruit flavours. The fruit is then crushed and allowed to soak for three hours to maximise flavour extraction. Juice is then drained off, settled and partially fermented cool in stainless steel then arrested when the residual sugar is 90g/L. The wine is bottled young with a deliberate frizzante to enhance its palate and appeal.” Warren Proft, winemaker
Delightful aperitif to any meal or the ideal match to light desserts.
