LA ZONA Moscato 2021
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 tongue-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 provide the perfect balance of sweetness, alcohol, acidity and generous fruit flavours. The fruit is then crushed and allowed to soak for three hours to maximise flavour extraction with then juice then settled to clarify, and partially ferment in cool in stainless steel, before being arrested 60% through with a residual sugar around 80g/L. The wine is bottled young with a deliberate ‘frizzante’ to enhance its palate and appeal.” Warren Proft, winemaker
