Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a fantastic Moscato! Well executed South Eastern Australian Moscato, vinified off-dry with slight effervescence. Delicate floral notes, ripe tropical fruit. A wonderful companion with unsweetened deserts, patio sipping, appetizers and drinking well on its own. Very impressed with this value-priced crowd pleasing Moscato. Tasted Jan 2017. Rated 90/100.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A light-bodied Moscato with pretty floral and tropical fruit aromas and flavours. Great Aperitif with grilled shrimp and summer salads.

The palate reveals a delight of ripe fruit and concord grape with a lingering quality. Serve will chilled, preferably on a patio!
