Innocent Bystander Pink Moscato 2015

£8.99

TASTING NOTE

Rose coloured, this Moscato exudes fairy floss, sherbert, pink grapefruit and mandarin aromas with an underlying note of toffee apple. Tasting of rose water, toffee apple and rhubarb crumble, the wine has a spritzy fizz with a fresh pear and raspberry finish.

The Gordo Muscat (Muscat of Alexandria) was selected from the Woonton, Boulton and Duffy vineyards, while the Black Muscat (Muscat Hamberg) that made up the remaining part of the blend was sourced from Burge Vineyard, Duffy Vineyard, Wall Vineyard and Pratt Vineyard, all in the Swan Hill region in Victoria.

Harvested in the cool of the night, fruit was chilled and crushed with six hours skin contact to extract a hint of pink from the Black Muscat. Juice underwent a 100% stainless steel ferment with aromatic yeast at 12°C. Fermentation was stopped at 5.5% alcohol by chilling the wine, then cold filtered at 0°C to trap in the natural bubbles and cold bottled under pressure to retain freshness and effervescence
