Appearance: Seductive pastel pink in colour.
Bouquet: The nose displays freshly crushed grapes, with a hint of strawberry.
Palate: The palate is lively and fresh as one would expect from a frizzante style wine. It tastes of freshly crushed grapes and pink lady apples.
Suggested Cuisine: Enjoy as an aperitif or with seafood and light pasta dishes.
General Characteristics: Sweet / Light Bodied
Vintage Conditions: Fresh early January rains prepared vines for what was to be a mild & then dry Riverina vintage. The cooler temps allowed for great depth in pungent fruit aromas and allowed the retention of natural acid in most varieties. Quality is well above average.
Winemaking: Fruit was sourced from vineyards that were well protected from the harsh sun and which displayed the intensity required for this style of wine. Blend of Muscat Gordo Blanco & White Frontignac. A dash of Shiraz is added to give a pink hue. The fruit was picked and pressed cold, in new state of the art bag presses. Juice was left to settle naturally and then racked clean. The wine was fermented cold to retain fresh fruit characters. Fermentation was stopped once a balance was reached between alcohol, sweetness, acidity and bubbles.
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 8.0% pH: 3.25 TA: 6.0 g/L
Cellaring: Best while young and fresh.
