Princess Butterfly Moscato 2015

Region: Victoria
Varietal: 90% Muscat, 10% Traminer
Alcohol: 7%
Best Consumed: 2017 - 2020
Sugar: 70g/L

Our 2015 Moscato is pale blush pink in colour with a light spritz to add a tingle on the palate.  Aromas of rose petals and pink grapefruit dominate the bouquet, whilst the palate is a refreshing, sweeter style with fruit flavours of strawberries, nectarines and lime.

Viticulturist Notes

The fermentation was conducted at very cool temperatures ranging between 8-10C, with the fermentation period taking 10 days.  To make certain sugar / alcohol balance was perfect, the ferment was measured daily for sugar and alcohol levels.  The final wine was then fined, cold stabilised and filtered within a week to ensure the retention of the spritz and to keep the wine as fresh and fruity as possible.

Wine Harvest Notes

Fruit for the McPherson Moscato was harvested from a select vineyard within the Swan Hill region of Victoria during late February 2015.  The fruit was crushed, pressed and cold settled before being inoculated.  The juice was also fined prior to inoculation to ensure that the final wine is smooth and easy to drink

Food Recommendations:

A delicious wine to drink chilled by itself, or served with spicy Asian curry or Thai salad.
